We first discovered Albariño many years ago on our travels. Though many bottles of wine were drunk, it was the memory of the Albariño that stayed with us long after we returned home. Over several years, the single bundle of vines we received from a fellow producer was slowly multiplied until a full vineyard was planted, and the crop it bore did not disappoint the memory of that magical wine we tasted so long ago…’
Heerlijk geurende aroma’s van abrikozen, nectarines en bloemen leggen meteen het exotische karakter bloot van deze unieke Zuid Afrikaanse Albarino. Een ziltige mineraliteit en een loepzuivere aciditeit zorgen ervoor dat deze karaktervolle wijn blijft boeien! Alweer een smakelijk buitenbeentje van dit toonaangevend domein in Robertson Valley!
Vinous – Neil Martin – 88/100
The 2020 Albariño, which comes in an eye-catching retro-style label, feels just a little neutral on the nose despite coaxing. The palate is well balanced, delivering more fruit than the nose (nectarine, grapefruit and light orange zest notes), and harmonious toward the finish. Give it a year and see if those aromatics have more to say in 12 months’ time.
