Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Albariño hails from the North West of Spain and Northern Portugal. This wine is so named because it tastes and smells as pure as the peal of a bell, and it was grown by Doug and Delwyn Bell in their vineyard just outside of Gisborne. This tank fermented wine was handpicked and whole bunch pressed to give us juice of great character and flavour. Our inputs were minimal and were all designed to preserve as much purity as we were able to do. We have only used the ‘free run’ juice from each pressing to craft this wine."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Elegant and pristine, the inviting bouquet shows white stone fruit, lemon peel, apple blossom and almond characters. The palate is juicy and focused with excellent purity and fine texture, wonderfully framed by bright acidity, finishing persistent and attractive. Always reliable, always stylish. At its best: now to 2019."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The refreshing 2016 vintage was hand-harvested in the Bell Vineyard and tank-fermented. Crisp and lively, it's a finely balanced, dry wine (4 grams/litre of residual sugar), with strong, ripe, citrusy, slightly spicy flavours and an appealingly floral bouquet."
