Spade Oak ‘Heart of Gold’ Gisborne Albarino 2015

Other White from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 21-Feb-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. The nose is soft and light with elegant proportions, showing fresh, delicate aromas of white floral, herbs, stonefruits and minerals, all entwined harmoniously. The nose has a subtle savoury underlay with a fine cut. Dryish to taste and light-medium bodied, the flavours of exotic white florals, stonefruits and herbs show with clarity and purity, and are gently enriched with nuances of honeysuckle. The mouthfeel is rounded and soft-textured with soft acidity, and the wine flows easily to a moderately sustained, floral nuanced finish. This is a soft and elegant, dryish Albarino with pure and gentle white floral and stonefruit flavours. Serve as an aperitif and with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2-3+ years. Fifth crop fruit from the ‘Spade Oak’ vineyard, hand-picked and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.2% alc. and 5 g/L RS, TA 7.4 g/L and pH 3.42. 145 dozen made. 17.5-/20 Feb 2016 RRP $24.95
