This wine ticks all the salinity boxes we are looking for in this variety. Bring on the seafood.
The nose has a distinctive blend of lime blossom and cucumber. From the start the wine has beautiful weight. It’s generous but kept in check with a backbone of acidity. The palate has moments of citrus, tropical fruits and a subtle savoury, salinity. This wine is beautifully fullsome and long yet remains refreshing and moreish.
Albariño – a grape native to Northern Spain- Rias Baxias on the Atlantic Coast - home to some of the world’s best seafood – goose barnacles, prawns, clams and crab. Nelson is Australasia’s largest fishing port and we decided to plant a trial block several years ago. Once it was considered a wine to be drunk young but the modern take on Albariño allows you to cellar it comfortably.
To say this would be a match for Kai Moana is an understatement – drink with freshly shucked oysters, garlic steamed mussels or a slice of pan seared tuna.
