Redmetal Vineyards Block Five Albarino 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Albarino from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 16-Nov-2021
Bright, yellow-green with some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is attractive and voluminous, filled the glass with aromas of white blossom, ripe stonefruit and a suggestion of quince. Medium-full bodied, dry to taste, aromas of ripe peach, quince and pear interweave peach blossom, expended by alcohol power to a spiced finish. Brisk, expressive fruit aromas carried by a mouth-filling, unctuous palate. Alcohol power elevated the mouthfeel and finish. This is a voluminous Albarino sings ripe fruit and blossom on an unctuous palate. Match with roasted pork and grilled octopus over the next 3+ years. Fruit from Bridge Pa Triangle, cool-fermented in stainless steel to 14.5% alc, 3.2g/l RS, rested on lees for 4 months. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Nov 2021 RRP $33
