2015 One Off Albarino
Another One Off wine - sorry but they are just so good! Albarino is a grape variety that originated in Galicia - in the North West of Spain, just above Portugal but it is grown throughout the Iberian peninsula. It is important because it is among one of the few white grape varieties that can produce crisp, refreshing wines in Gisborne's humid climate (like it can in Spain). A cadre of Gizzy winemakers are investing heavily in Albarino and there are some excellent wines on the market. This is the second One Off Albarino (yes I know - WTF) and it's redolent with crunchy green apple, soft florals and cutting fresh lime.
