Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2018

We have seen more and more New Zealand versions of the Spanish/Portuguese variety Albariño hitting the market in recent times. It's a variety that seems to work well here right throughout the country. This one is part of the Left Field range from Te Awa in Gisborne and initially stands out due to its price but what's in the bottle measures up very nicely indeed. Bright, light and fresh it shows florals, stonefruit, tangy citrus and mineral. A fab alternative to crisp dry Rieslings or Pinot Gris.

Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"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."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"The 2018 vintage was mostly handled in stainless steel (tanks and barrels); 5 per cent of the blend was fermented in seasoned French oak puncheons. Light lemon/green, it is a strongly varietal wine, with good intensity of fresh, citrusy, slightly spicy flavours, minerally notes, and a racy, dry (2.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), appetisingly crisp finish. Top summer drinking. (From Te Awa.)"

90/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, November 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"Aromatic albariño with citrus, mandarin, lime sherbet and white flower flavours giving a strong varietal identity. Fruity acidity almost masks a hint of sweetness and, together with fine tannins promotes a drying finish."
