We’re huge fans of albariño here, but seeing one from New Zealand is a bit different. Turns out the Kiwis know a thing or two about this Spanish grape. This one by Coopers Creek comes from the vineyard of the Bell family (get it…Bell Ringer!!!) just outside of Gisborne. It’s got a nice portion of wild ferment and spends time in older oak barrels, perfect for building texture. There’s even a nice line of salinity that shines through and adds some extra interest to the flavour profile of mandarin, lime and peach. Unexpected and irresistible!
