Spade Oak and Heart of Gold – Archive

31-Dec-2010
Brilliant straw-yellow with lemon-gold hues. The nose is softly fresh and well-packed with a complex amalgam of white stonefruits, white florals, fresh and pungent herbs, and nutty, mineral elements that build in depth. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features a complex core of white stonefruits, florals and pungent herbs, infused with flint and mineral interest. The mouthfeel is fresh and crisp with fine and soft phenolic textures underlining the fruit. This has a fine, concentrated, rounded heart balanced by mouthwatering, lacy acidity to leads to a herb-nuanced, minerally finish. This s a complex Albarino with stonefruit and pungent herb flavours and a fresh, fine-textured mouthfeel.
