Albariño is best suited to cool growing conditions like we experience in the upper reaches of the King Valley. Our Albarino is a delicious aromatic style with bright Citrus and spicy pear aromas, complemented by stone fruits and a crisp, dry palate. Pronounced al-ba-rin-yo, it's a great match with tapas and seafood.
Albariño in northern Spain is traditionally drunk with the local seafood delicacies. This wine is the perfect match for freshly shucked oysters drizzled with a chilli and lime sauce, or pan fried trout fillets with lemon juice, cracked black pepper and rocket salad. It is also quite versatile so a selection of tapas will be sure to delight.
The wine was mainly fermented in tank with 15% fermenting and spending three months in older French oak for added complexity.
In the glass, this wine has a light gold colour, with the slightest tinge of green revealing its youth.
Refreshingly lifted aromas of citrus, nectarine and almond kernel.
On the palate the wine shows a racy acid that provides a crisp taste and length along with mineral flinty notes and a deep stone fruit flavour.
Peak drinking 2025.
The Albariño grapes used to make this wine were grown at our Banksdale vineyard at 485m above sea level in the upper King Valley. The grapes were harvested in late March 2022 at a Baume level of 12.5.
