Te Awa Collection Left Field Albarino 2017
100% Albariño sourced from outstanding Gisborne vineyards on the East Coast of the New Zealand's North Island.
Fruit was hand-picked and gently pressed to stainless steel tanks. 85% of the clear juice was racked and fermented with yeast selected to highlight the lovely aromatics and texture of this exciting variety. The remaining 15% of the juice was run to seasoned French oak puncheons for a natural fermentation for added complexity and richness.
Gorgeous little citrus flowers link arms with melon and peach to dance in the sunshine, always maintaining an air of class. Meanwhile lime lingers in the shadows vying for attention!
