We were the first to plant this white variety in the Hunter Valley. Albariño originates from Rías Baixas in the Galician region of North West Spain. Like the Hunter, this region is classified as warm maritime and its wines are low in alcohol and acid focused, typical of our Hunter Valley whites. The wine is characterized by its high natural acidity, minerality and zesty fruit.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Tropical fruit and spice, succulent acidity with a lingering finish and lifted citrus characteristics.
Winemaker Notes
The 2017 vintage had perfect ripening conditions with gradually increasing temperatures and long daylight hours resulting in beautifully ripe and healthy fruit which we picked in late February. After minimal skin-contact we fermented the juice in stainless steel tanks using a small amount of solids and a variety-specific yeast. Extended lees contact post fermentation resulted in a textural complex wine.
