Maison Noire Hawke’s Bay Albarino 2016

Other White from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 13-Feb-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues and some depth. The nose is subtle with a delicate core of white florals and subtle citrus notes, unfolding yellow stonefruits and suggestions of honeysuckle. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the mouthfeel is fresh and lively with light and restrained, gently mouthfilling flavours of white florals and stonefruits, entwined with a little honeysuckle. The palate is elegantly proportioned with fine, firm and textured core and fresh, balanced acid briskness. This has good linearity and carries to a rounded, but concentrated, lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated dry Albarina with light floral and stonefruit flavours and a fresh mouthfeel. Hand-picked fruit from Maraekakaho, given 12 hours skin contact and fermented on gross lees to 12.3% alc. and 0.73 g/L RS, TA 6.75 g/L and pH 3.23, the wine aged on fine lees for 3 months. 16.5+/20 Feb 2017 RRP $22.00
