2021 was a truly exceptional Hawkes Bay vintage. Naturally moderate yields combined with warmer than average temperatures and dry settled conditions encouraged fruit to achieve optimum ripeness and maintain excellent condition through to harvest. The 2021 Reserve Albariño displays intensely pure and expressive characters of ripe peach and citrus lime entwined with a subtle saline mineral complexity.

Vineyards and Winemaking
Hand harvesting and gentle whole-bunch pressing encouraged the finest quality juice from the outset. Cold settled, beautifully clear juice was carefully racked under inert gas cover to stainless steel tanks for cool fermentation with aromatic yeast strains. A brief period of maturation on yeast lees followed prior to blending of the individual parcels for finishing and bottling. This wine is crafted from a single vineyard named 'Two Terraces', a relatively cool inland site situated near Maraekakaho.
