Redmetal Hawke’s Bay Albarino 2016

Other White from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 04-Oct-2016
Bright straw-yellow colour with green-gold suggestions, paler on edge. The nose is softly concentrated with clear and refreshing aromas of exotic white florals and stonefruits along with a layering of lime, that blossom in richness and volume. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features rich and exotic fruit flavours of white stonefruits and citrus fruits lifted by white florals and nuances of herbs. The mouthfeel is rounded and lush, with a good core and soft-textures guiding line, balanced by crisp, lacy acidity. This has palate presence and weight. The flavours lead to a long and lingering exotic-fruited finish. This is a softly concentrated dry Albarino with gently rich flavours of exotic florals and stonefruits and a fine-flowing palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4 years. 100% Albarino, hand-picked and WBP, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 2.4 g/L RS, TA 6.08 g/L and pH 3.33, the wine aged 5 months on lees. 18.0/20 Oct 2016 RRP $24.00
