Limited Release Albariño 2019
Albariño is best suited to cool growing conditions like we experience in the upper reaches of the King Valley. Our Albariño is a delicious aromatic style with bright citrus and spicy pear aromas, complemented by stone fruits and a crisp, dry palate.
Pronounced al-ba-rin-yo, it’ s a great match with tapas and seafood.
|Vineyard Region:||King Valley|
|Wine Analysis:||Alc/Vol: 12.5%|
|Colour:||In the glass, this wine has a light gold colour, with the slightest tinge of green revealing its youth.|

Recommended food pairings: Albariño in northern Spain is traditionally drunk with the local seafood delicacies. This wine is the perfect match for freshly shucked oysters drizzled with a chilli and lime sauce, or pan fried trout fillets with lemon juice, cracked black pepper and rocket salad. It is also quite versatile so a selection of tapas will be sure to delight.
Growing Conditions: The Albariño grapes used to make this wine were grown at our Banksdale vineyard at 485m above sea level in the upper King Valley. The grapes were harvested in late February 2019 at a Baume level of 11.94.
Winemaker: Tom Canning
Winemaking notes: The wine was mainly fermented in tank with 15% fermenting and spending four month in older French oak for added complexity. This wine was completed with an alcohol content of 12.5%.
