Brilliant pale straw colour with a greenish tint around the outskirts and a watery hue. Pear and dried apple aromas are intermeshed with quince, lime and spice. Light, steely textured and minerally, the palate sports a racy flavour profile of lime and green apple fruits over a lemon and wet slate back drop. Dry chalky finish with crunchy acidity and a zingy steely mineral laced aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.

Other Reviews….
With each release, these 2 talented winemakers work hard to unravel the Spanish grape's great mystery, not to mention suitability to our soils. They come mighty close in 2021, delivering a complex and aromatic wine of some beauty. Honeysuckle, lemon, pithy grapefruit, honeydew melon and touch of preserved lemon savouriness join a fleshy, mealy texture and spiced palate. Utterly attention grabbing, not to mention, delicious. Drink by 2025.

The Anderson & Marsh team is doing really good things with albarino.
It’s a fine wine from every angle. The chalkiness of the texture, the inlay of florals, the combination of intensity and length, not to mention the all-round style. It’s generally fruit-driven but then I’d also call it savoury, and complex. It’s driven by citrus, has a keen tonic/botanicals side, goes into grapefruit pulp and exits with a sure textural kick. The aftertaste introduces honeysuckle, perhaps even fennel, and steel. It’s a champion wine. Drink 2023-2027.
