The Albariño grape variety originates from Spain’s Galicia province.

The grape has found a similarly warm, maritime climate on New Zealand’s East Coast, where it flourishes.

Albariño grapes are used to produce fruit-forward wines with elegant, lightly spiced or floral aromatics, and juicy stone fruit and citrus characteristics on the palate.

Regional characteristics

Our Gisborne Wine

Our Gisborne Albariño has fresh scents of lime, peach, apricot and honeysuckle characters.

The palate features bright fruit and tangy acidity, leading to a delicate and dry styled finish with excellent length.




Our Hawkes Bay Wine

Our Albariño wine is made from a single vineyard parcel from Villa Maria’s Joseph Soler vineyard in Hawkes Bay. 

The resulting wine displays pure varietal characters of peach and lime, with subtle minerality on a complex, long and dry finish.

Food matching

A fresh, light to medium bodied wine, Albariño is ideally suited to antipasto, tapas and fresh seafood, particularly calamari served with a squeeze of lemon.

Best served at

8 °C / 46 °F
