Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Albariño is a relatively new kid on the block in New Zealand. This Spanish variety has been given the Matua treatment in Hawke’s Bay, creating a uniquely NZ take on this Spanish classic. With only the best parcels of fruit blended into our Albariño, the results are exceptional. Bursting with flavours from apricot to peach with a dash of zesty citrus, you'll be wondering where this Spaniard was all your life."
5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW (2015 Vintage)
"​Lovely weight and an ethereal texture. Fine, citrus. Very pure. Touch of chalky mineral character. Very crisp. Very fine phenolics. Impressive wine with real character and drinkability."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"Full of personality, the 2015 vintage is richly scented and mouthfilling, with a strong surge of vibrant, peachy, spicy, slightly limey flavours, mouth-watering acidity and a dry (3 grams/litre of residual sugar), lingering finish."
4 Stars & 18.0/20 Raymond Chan, October 2015 (2015 Vintage) 
"The third release of this label. Bright, light straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, pale edged. The nose is softly fresh with a concentrated, rounded core of white and yellow florals, white stonefruits, limes and refreshing nuances of flint and minerals. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features a tightly bound heart of white and yellow florals and citrus fruits. The fruit has a subtle richness and sweetness, enlivened by crisp, lacy acidity. The wine has focus and linearity, with fine, grainy phenolics emerging to balance the unctuousness, carrying through to long, dry finish. This is a tightly focussed, dry Albarino with a lively mouthfeel and fine-textured finish. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 3+ years. A blend of fruit from young and old vines, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 3.4 g/L RS, the wine aged several months on light lees. 167 cases made."
