Babich ‘Family Estates’ ‘Individual Vineyard – Headwaters’ Marlborough Albarino 2016

Other White from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Apr-2017
Brilliant light straw colour with slight green hues, pale edged. The nose is elegantly presented with gently growing volume, unfolding exotic white and yellow florals with white stonefruit and citrus fruit aromas, along with herb interest. The aromatics are attractively detailed. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is vibrant and lively with aromatic fruit flavours of citrus and stonefruits entwined with exotic florals and hints of spice. The fruit shows with richness and succulence, balanced by fine phenolic textures and refreshing, brisk acidity. This has a concentrated core and line that carries to a lingering floral finish. This is a subtly rich-fruited dry Albatino with citrus, stonefruit and floral flavours on a fine-featured, crisp palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4 years. The second harvest of Albarino. Hand-picked fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 5.2 g/L RS. TA 7.1 g/L and pH 3.2. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0+/20 Apr 2017 RRP $24.95
