Why do we love this wine?

Ahhh albãrino, a Spanish favourite from...New Zealand? That’s right mofos, Kiwi albãrino here from the crew at Waimea Estate in Nelson. It’s bloody good. Don’t trust us? Well Bob Campbell, a Master of Wine, awarded it 94 points and called this “one of the best local examples I’ve tasted of this promising Spanish / Portuguese grape variety,” and commented that the variety “Shows great promise in the Nelson region especially.”

Waimea are a great producer and they’ve delivered citrus, mandarin, peach and nectarine flavours with this ‘16 vintage. It’s dry, crisp and rich, and if you’re after food pairings look no further than albãrino’s spiritual homeland of Galicia, Spain, where seafood reigns supreme. Try get your hands on the traditional pulpo (octopus) or, if that’s not your vibe, then oysters, fish and prawns will all do the job splendidly.
