Stanley Estate Albarino
New to Wineseeker, Stanley Estate lies in the Awatere Valley of Southern Marlborough.
Albarino is rare to find in NZ, rather than Northwest Spain where the grape calls home. Typically it makes a fresh citrusy dry wine with a pleasing minerality that pairs exceptionally with seafood.
Stanley Estate's version is 100% Albariño, from a single vineyard. Bright straw-yellow with lemon-green hues, aromas of white stonefruit, limes and exotic yellow florals. Dry to taste and a full, warm and rounded generous palate. Concentrated flavours of white and yellow peaches, honeydew melons, vanilla, passionfruit and pineapple. Minerality, zesty acidity,
and slight oak spice. It has a full and lingering palate.
Vinification: The hand-picked fruit was whole bunch pressed on a gentle cycle, the juice was settled, chilled and racked to old french barriques, and then fermented using the wild yeast strains from the vineyard on the skins. The balance was gently pressed and then transferred to stainless steel tanks, where it went through a controlled fermentation using french yeasts. The wine then spent a good time on lees to add a real depth of flavour and palate weight to the wine. The wine was cross flow filtered and prepared for boiling under screwcap to maintain freshness and quality. Seasoned for 10 months in old french barriques.
