Tono Hawke’s Bay Albarino 2016

Other White from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 27-Oct-2017
Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim. This has a very fresh, aromatic nose showing bright white florals and white stonefruits, entwined with lime fruit, showing very good depth and concentration, unveiling some minerally elements. Dry to taste and full-bodied, the palate has rich, deep and concentrated flavours of white stonefruits and florals, with citrus fruits and nuances of nuts and minerals. The palate has fine, firm phenolic textures to balance the fruit depth, and refreshing, lacy acidity. This has power and linearity, carrying the wine to a long, lingering, concentrated finish of stonefruits and citrus fruits, with floral lift. This is a full-bodied dry Albarino with richness, weight and fine, firm textures and fresh acidity. Match with seafood and poultry, or with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3 years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Craft Farm’ vineyard, WBP and fermentation initialised in tank then transferred to tinaja (clay jars) and barrels, fermenting to 14.5% alc. and 2.0 g/L RS. TA 7.0 g/L and pH 3.4. 18.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $21.95
