Waimea Estate Albarino 2016
Nelson, New Zealand

Albariño, native to Galicia on the North Atlantic coast of Spain, is revered for its delightfully fresh aromatics and brisk acidity. Though still brisk, this offering is a touch softer than previous vintages while maintaining typical aromas of white peach, jasmine and the seaside. The wine has a dry, crisp, salty mineral-driven palate that pairs elegantly with seafood and garden fresh salads.

Alc. 12.5%

Winery Profile


The owners of Waimea Estates, Trevor and Robyn Bolitho, have been growing grapes on Nelson’s Waimea Plains since 1993. There are now over 100 hectares of grapes planted in six vineyards with predominantly free-draining alluvial soils. The combination of these soils with plenty of sunshine hours and a long ripening season, thanks to moderating maritime influences and a protective phalanx of hills, provide the perfect terroir for growing quality grapes.
