Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"This Spanish popular variety ripened by the Hawkes Bay sun is fresh, crisp and dry, with subtle aromas of white peach and orange zest. The mid palate is round and creamy, with subtle nutty characters. The finish shows some grassy notes, that add onto the weight and the balance of the wine.​"


Yvonne Lorkin, June 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​Guillaume Thomas & Esther Smith are two of the nicest new wine growers I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. They’re young, ultra-industrious and always gun for the best. They’ve planted a tiny little vineyard high up on the Waimarama Road and turn out stunning examples of wine like this local incarnation of the spanish classic. Lemon, wild flowers, flinty minerality all combine to create a snappy-dry, summer-in-a-bottle drink that will sing with orange and herb crusted terakihi."


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The characterful 2016 vintage was hand-picked near Maraekakaho, tank-fermented and then lees-aged for three months in old barrels. Pale yellow, it is medium to full-bodied, with strong, ripe, peachy, citrusy, slightly spicy flavours, crisp but not high acidity and a fully dry, balanced finish. Showing considerable complexity, it's already drinking well."


Raymond Chan, February 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues and some depth. The nose is subtle with a delicate core of white florals and subtle citrus notes, unfolding yellow stonefruits and suggestions of honeysuckle. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the mouthfeel is fresh and lively with light and restrained, gently mouthfilling flavours of white florals and stonefruits, entwined with a little honeysuckle. The palate is elegantly proportioned with fine, firm and textured core and fresh, balanced acid briskness. This has good linearity and carries to a rounded, but concentrated, lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated dry Albarina with light floral and stonefruit flavours and a fresh mouthfeel. Hand-picked fruit from Maraekakaho, given 12 hours skin contact and fermented on gross lees to 12.3% alc. and 0.73 g/L RS, TA 6.75 g/L and pH 3.23, the wine aged on fine lees for 3 months."
