Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"This is the 2nd harvest of Albariño fruit from our certified organic Headwaters Vineyard. It was picked by hand and quickly crushed and pressed into a stainless steel tank where the juice was fermented at controlled cool temperatures to capture the intense flavours and aromatic purity of the variety. Fermentation was halted prior to dryness to balance the refreshing acidity. Bottling took place soon after completion of ferment.

A floral lift with lime zest and and clover honey. Fresh and juicy sweet, grapefruit and lingering spice/mineral finish."
4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, April 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Brilliant light straw colour with slight green hues, pale edged. The nose is elegantly presented with gently growing volume, unfolding exotic white and yellow florals with white stonefruit and citrus fruit aromas, along with herb interest. The aromatics are attractively detailed. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is vibrant and lively with aromatic fruit flavours of citrus and stonefruits entwined with exotic florals and hints of spice. The fruit shows with richness and succulence, balanced by fine phenolic textures and refreshing, brisk acidity. This has a concentrated core and line that carries to a lingering floral finish. This is a subtly rich-fruited dry Albatino with citrus, stonefruit and floral flavours on a fine-featured, crisp palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4 years. The second harvest of Albarino. Hand-picked fruit coolfermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 5.2 g/L RS. TA 7.1 g/L and pH 3.2. Certified BioGro organic."
