About the range:
HomeBlock Range: Paying homage to our unique patch of land in Waimauku. Hand picked and crafted from small parcels of grapes, our Homeblock range is the result of minimal winemaker intervention intimately bringing to life the wine, our history and provenance.
About the wine:
Say “AHL-BAH-REE-NYO” – see easy! Cementing it’s place in history as a diverse winegrowing region, Waimauku welcomes Albarino, the Spanish Migrant, to the clay soils of our Homeblock.
This hardy Euro possesses both character and resilience. Small berries and thick skins mean it take anything the New Zealand climate can throw at us, producing structured, zesty wines with body and concentration.
Hand-reared from young vines in the Margan Block, this wine is all about youthful free-spirit. A rich, ripe and textural example of this newbie but with all the varietal zest and saltiness unique to the varietal.
Orange blossom, apricots and grapefruit on the nose lead to rock melon, pineapple and peaches with limey acidity. From young vines to be enjoyed young.
