Wine tasting notes
Albariño (Alvarinho) is an increasing international white variety originating from from Spain’s Atlantic North West, famously Rias Baixas. Local legend once mistook it for the foreign Riesling grape, which seems plausible with its citrus fruit and crisp acidity.
But unlike Riesling its more drink-young appeal includes delicate white peach character and a jasmine floral nature, as well as mineral flavours that can be stony and steely but also sometimes a little salty. Called Alvarinho in Portugal its light body makes it perfect for a style that deserves to show up more often in Antipodean afternoons.
Pure and vibrant in the glass, this wine displays abundant aromas of honeysuckle and orange blossom with subtle hints of beeswax. The palate displays concentrated flavours of juicy white peach, subtle grapefruit, and a distinctive mineral edge. Structured with abundant natural acidity and finely balanced with underlying ripe fruit sweetness, this wine seamlessly leads to a long, fresh and lively dry finish.
