Terrace Edge Waipara Valley Albarino 2016

Other White from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 20-Sep-2016
Bright, light golden-hued straw colour, lighter edged. This has a moderately full and gently concentrated nose of ripe citrus fruit and tropical fruits, yellow stonefruits, pineapple and subtle nutty suggestions. The aromatics build in depth and open in volume with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features a softly concentrated and deep core of rich, ripe citrus and tropical fruits with pineapple and exotic florals, and nutty notes. This has weight and presence, the wine following a fine phenolic, textural line, and the palate enlivened by lacy, crisp acidity. This has energy with some underlying power carrying the wine to a long, concentrated finish with some grip and exotic floral and fruit lift. This is a rich and exotic citrus and tropical fruit flavoured dry Albarino with palate presence, light grip and crisp acidity. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3-4 years. First crop fruit from vines planted in 2013, hand-picked and given 3 hours skin contact and fully indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned oak to 13.5% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS, TA 9.27 and pH 3.09, the wine undergoing batonnage. 75 cases made. 18.0-/20 Sep 2016 RRP $24.00 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
