Left Field Albariño, Gisborne

Albariño ripens well in the warmth and sunshine of the Gisbourne region of New Zealand’s North Island. Grapes are hand-harvested from the Brian Tietjin and Bushmere vineyards and whole bunch pressed prior to a fermentation; 90% as clear juice in stainless steel and 10% with indigenous yeast in seasoned oak puncheons. The nose shows aromas of citrus flowers, melon and peach; the palate shows some richness and weight and is backed by stone fruit and lime on the finish.
