Middle-Earth Albarino 2020

Taste & Other Notes

Mouth-filling with firm, ripe acidity is the initial impression but the ripe peach with a touch of citrus acidity (lemon/lime) soon come to the fore, gentle salinity on the palate adds to the texture of the wine without dominating the flavours.

This is a lovely expression of Nelson-produced Albarino, the acidity is ripe and juicy while the stonefruit and citrus flavours are complimented by a seaside-like texture. Perfect with fresh shellfish this summer
