Terrace Edge North Canterbury Albarino 2017

Other White from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 11-Apr-2018
Bright, light golden-hued yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and elegant with a taut core of white florals and minerals and a touch of salinity. The aromatics show excellent clarity with finesse and building intensity and detail with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has penetrating and vigorous flavours of white florals and white stonefruits, entwined with subtle citrus fruit elements, minerals and nuances of saline. The palate possesses light phenolic textures forming a positive line with balanced acid freshness lending a degree of poise. The flavours carry to an elegant, lingering finish of florals and stonefruits. This is an intense and vibrant dry Albarino with white floral and stonefruit flavours along with minerals and saline notes on a fine-textured palate. Serve with seafood, and with fine Asian fare over the next 3+ years. Second crop, hand-picked fruit, fully indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned oak to 13.5% alc. and 7 g/L RS, TA 10.5 g/L and pH 3.24. 18.0+/20 Apr 2018 RRP $25.00 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
