Winemakers Notes
Albariño hails from the North West of Spain and Northern Portugal. The wine is so named because it tastes and smells as pure as the peal of a bell, and it was grown by Doug and Delwyn Bell in their vineyard just outside of Gisborne. Vintage 2013 was tremendous in Gisborne and we were able to harvest fruit of real quality. This tank fermented wine was handpicked and whole bunch pressed to give us juice of great character and flavour. Our inputs were minimal and were all designed to preserve as much purity as we were able to do.
Alc 13.5%
Acid 8.3g/L
Res sugar 4.0g/L
pH 3.38

Tasting Notes
Colour: At bottling the wine was very pale with light green tints. With time we expect that it will develop some pale gold hints.
Bouquet: Pure and fresh, with hints of citrus and peach.
Palate: Medium bodied and zesty. This wine has a brilliant acid line and this gives the palate real length.

Albariño does not seem to require long cellaring. We expect that this wine will drink well on release and into the medium term.
Food Matches
Perfect with seafood, chicken and paella
