Stanley Estates ‘Single Vineyard’ Awatere Valley Marlborough Albarino 2015

Other White from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Jan-2016
Bright straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, lighter on edge. This has a well-proportioned nose with deep and concentrated aromas of white stonefruits and exotic white and yellow florals, unfolding layers of tropical fruits, lemon-curd and nutty oak elements with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features deep and concentrated flavours of white and yellow stonefruits, florals, minerals, and spicy, nutty oak that form a strong and positive core with subtle richness. The mouthfeel possesses bright, cutting and zesty acidity and very fine textures that provide drive and linearity, and the wine carries to a lingering finish of exotic florals and spicy oak nuances. This is a concentrated Albarino with exotic fruit complexed by spicy oak, and a fresh, linear palate. Match with roasted and barbecued seafood and poultry, and with Chinese cuisine over the next 3+ years. Estate fruit, 60% stainless-steel fermented, and 40% indigenous yeast fermented and aged 6 months in seasoned barriques with 40% MLF, to 13.1% alc. and 2.2 g/L RS. 18.0+/20 Jan 2016 RRP $22.99
