Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"Albariño was originally grown in Spain and Portugal where it produces distinctively crisp, dry aromatic white wines. Now produced out of the Gisborne region the aromas of this wine are intriguing with a freshly scented array of lime, peach, apricot and honeysuckle. The palate features bright fruit and tangy acidity, leading the wine to a delicate and dry styled finish with excellent length.

The 2021 Gisborne season was exceptional, thanks to a long, warm and dry summer. The grapes for this exciting wine were sourced from a single vineyard site, the famous Bell vineyard in Gisborne. Planted in 2009, the Bell Vineyard Albariño is meticulously managed with particular attention given to balancing yield and fruit exposure, allowing ultra clean fruit to ripen with fantastic flavours and natural acidity at harvest.

Beautifully ripe fruit was harvested and gently pressed to release the highest quality juice. Cold settled, the juice was racked bright to cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks with cultured aromatic yeast strains to highlight the unique aromatics of this variety. Following several months maturation on light yeast lees the wines were then blended and prepared for bottling."

    5 star review  Best wine shop in Christchurch. Excellent range from NZ and overseas, great weekly specials and staff picks. Free delivery in Christchurch for 6 bottles or more, or drive in pick up option. I like that I can place an order online and pay with Eftpos on pick up.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
