Very fashionable dry white wine that has secured an international demand (having `been seen` in Madrid`s Tapas Bars in the 90`s.) Not unlike a chablis in style it has a lively freshness and dry minerality with a creamy finish.
BEST SELLER Pale yellow with a green hue, this Albariño is intense on the nose with peach and citrus aromas. The freshness and minerality on the mid-palate is superb, ably supported by a remarkable acidity which frames the juicy fruit on the crisp finish.
Spanish variety that actually works really well in NZ. Gorgeous little citrus flowers link arms with melon and peach to dance in the sunshine, always maintaining an air of class. Meanwhile lime lingers in the shadows vying for attention. Imbibe on its own or devour along with a Thai chicken salad
It was important to Rick that The Liberator should, in some small way, mark the events to date of the year 2020. Horrific bush fires in Australia, unprecedented plagues of locusts in East Africa, COVID-19… Plus, the uncertainty inflicted on the world with the perfect storm of Donald Trump, Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin.
Very pale with green-gold lights. The aroma is scented with wild flowers and white fruits. On the palate at first a luscious texture then a fine crisp citrus finish which makes it an ideal accompaniment to crustaceans.
It’s hard to believe Pazo de Señorans have been making wine for a mere 28 years given that they are now considered one of the finest producers in Spain. Anna, the winemaker, is fastidious in her approach, which could not be more pared back or simple.
Golden yellow in colour, clean and bright. This is a supremely elegant, complex white that has enticing floral , citrus and toasted nut aromas. Very good acidity and a delicate mouth feel. Fruity finish with persistent freshness. Ideal with Spanish dishes such as paella and seafood.
Orange wine is a white wine made by leaving the juice on the skins for an extended period of time. In this case, the juice from the Albarino is left in contact with the skins for 15 days, this results in an amber colour wine with notes of marmalade and nectarine.
