Spade Oak ‘Heart of Gold’ Gisborne Albarino 2013

Other White from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 26-Nov-2013
Brilliant, light straw-yellow colour with slight hints of gold, lighter on rim. The nose is very fresh and elegant with pure aromas of white florals and citrus zest forming a fine core, cut by minerally elements. Dry to taste and medium-light bodied, light, pure and cutting white stonefruits and exotic floral flavours are enlivened by zesty, bracing acidity. The mouthfeel is racy and slippery and the palate flows with smoothness. This has plenty of tension and energy surrounding the rounded core and the flavours carry through to a bright, refreshing finish with citrus and floral nuances. This is a very crisp, racy, fine-featured Albarino with pure white floral flavours. Serve with seafood and white meat dishes with creamy sauces over the next 3 years.
