Maison Noire Albarino

Country / Region: Hawkes Bay
Vineyard: Maison Noire
Varietal: Albariño
Vintage: 2016

Tiny volume aromatic white made from the Spanish grape Albarino

Albarino is famously produced in North-West Spain on the Atlantic coast north of Portugal where it makes a salty and crisp dry aromatic wine. More New Zealand producers have seen a similarity in the climate and soil conditions that make it successful there mirrored in NZ. This version is grown in the Hawkes Bay, all hand picked before 12 hours of skin contact and fermented on lees to dry. Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues and some depth. The nose is subtle with a delicate core of white florals and subtle citrus notes, unfolding yellow stonefruits and suggestions of honeysuckle. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the mouthfeel is fresh and lively with light and restrained, gently mouthfilling flavours of white florals and stonefruits, entwined with a little honeysuckle.
