About the range: 

We wanted to create a range of wine that showcases the best wine regions in the country, but also captures the pioneering spirit of New Zealand wine — the search for something new and interesting.

So, we decided that our wine range should evolve with the seasons, allowing you to discover something different each time you visit.

 

About the wine: 

It’s been likened to Riesling’s sexier cousin, but Albariño has a unique charm and is certainly making some noise on the New Zealand wine scene.

 

At home in Northwest Spain and Portugal, Albariño is an exciting alternative white variety that seems to possess the best parts of a Riesling and Viognier but with none of their hang-ups.

 

From the cool climate of Marlborough’s Awatere Valley, this is a lively example of what the varietal can deliver with superb concentration and intensity.

 

Bright acidity, structure and body meet a foray of citrus and fleshy stone fruit aromas intertwined with white florals, wild fennel and crushed seashells. A taut but generous palate delivers lemongrass, white peach, a touch of aniseed and a unique salty minerality.

 

Bold, fresh and the perfect spring weather companion.
