2024 Albarino

2024 Albarino

Albarino is an exciting variety that is well suited to the Hunter Valley. Our warm maritime growing conditions align quite closely with those of north-west Spain, the home of Albarino.

VITICULTURE 
Grown in the Broke Fordwich sub-region, the vines were planted in 2018 on the sandy alluvial soils of the Wollombi Brook. The grapes were hand harvested in the first week of February and being a cooler year, the grapes held their acidity beautifully. 

WINE
This is only the second release of Albarino and is something of a rare commodity due to the low yielding vines. The vineyard is only a few kilometres from the winery and the hand harvested grapes were transported and crushed into the press with the juice off skins and in tank within a couple of hours. The juice was fermented in tank and left on yeast lees with regular battonage for approximately 8 weeks to add a little more texture. 

TASTING NOTES
Made without the use of oak, the palate exudes spice and lime with a delicious, crisp minerality. Albarino is known for its bracing acidity, but the aromatic richness provides the perfect contrast, making this a delicious option for a range of richer foods like risotto, paella and pasta.
