Description:
This 2011 Albarino is a medium-dry wine, with zesty grapefruit, ripe figs and nutty flavours and an almost salty minerality. It is an aromatic wine with a creamy structured palate.

100% Albarino, Single Estate, Awatere Valley, Marlborough.

Pairs well with fine seafood, chicken and Paella dishes, Tapas and snacks

This wine is best enjoyed young. Can cellar for up to 4 years.

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.

Producer Information

With degrees in horticulture from the University of Bath, Steve Pellett and Bridget Ennals set off, in true intrepid explorer mode, to travel through Africa then back to the UK to work as fruit technologists.

But it was another two years before they found the place where they wanted to put down their roots: and that place was at the top of New Zealand's South Island, under the cool gaze of Mount Tapuae-O-Uenuku (the footprint of the rainbow) in Marlborough's spectacular Awatere Valley near Blenheim.

They signed up early to the NZ Sustainable Wine growing programme, as they saw this as being the basis and philosophy of their vineyard practices. Such care and attention to detail has really paid dividends - witness the amazing clutch of trophies recently awarded to their 2010 Sauvignon Blanc (only their 2nd vintage!)
