Stanley Estates ‘Single Vineyard’ Awatere Valley Marlborough Albarino 2016

Other White from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Jun-2017
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and firm with aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, and white florals with subtle notes of herbs and minerals. The nose shows good depth and is refreshing and thirst-quenching. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a good concentrated core of white stonefruits and white florals with waxy mineral notes, along with herb and nutty detail. The mouthfeel is firm and features the concentrated core which is enlivened by brisk acidity, the wine flowing along a dry-textured line, carrying to a firm and taut, dry finish of stonefruits, florals and minerals. This is a firmly concentrated dry Albarino with white stonefruit, floral and mineral flavours on a brisk palate. Match with seafood and Asian fare over the next 3-4 years. From 7 y.o. vines, 60% tank-fermented, and 40% hand-picked fruit and indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned oak, to 13.0% alc. and 2.7 g/L RS, the wine aged 10 months in oak with light lees contact and 60% MLF. 17.5/20 Jun 2017 RRP $22.95
