Pig’s Back Hawke’s Bay Albarino 2016

Other White from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 03-Jul-2017
Bright, light golden-yellow colour. The nose is initially a little shy, but opens up in volume with aeration to show white floral, citrus and lime fruit aromas along with stonefruits and notes of minerals. Then the salinity emerges. Dry to taste and medium full-bodied, this has good intensity and depth of lime, floral and stonefruit flavours. The mouthfeel has depth, body and fruit presence. The palate has power and fine textures and grip with bright, crisp, near racy acidity, and finishes with plenty of salinity. A very good example of how well this variety can perform. Drink over the next 3+ years. Fruit from Korokipo, 7 y.o. vines, given 12 hours skin contact with indigenous yeast ferment in tank to 13.5% alc. and 2.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 8 months in seasoned oak with batonnage. 18.0+/20 Jun 2017 RRP $23.95
