Left Field is a 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.

"Scents of white pepper, lime and underripe peach emerge on the nose of the Left Field Albariño, a variety that shows a lot of promise in New Zealand. This version is medium-bodied, with an attractive plumpness on the palate but also a crisp, slightly chalky finish."robertparker.com
