Albarino is a premium white grape variety originating from North West Spain in the Rias Baixas area and in Northern Portugal along the Atlantic coast. This maritime influence gives cool climate conditions not dissimilar to the Awatere Valley, Marlbrorough, where we planted our vines in the aim of hand-crafting wines of excellence and individuality.
