Smith & Sheth Cru Heretaunga Albariño 2021

A delicious example of this classic variety of Spain and Portugal, this highly refined, youthful wine was hand-harvested at Bridge Pa, in Hawke’s Bay, and fully barrel-fermented. Bright, light yellow/green, it is weighty and fleshy, with generous, ripe, peachy flavours, showing a distinct touch of complexity, and a long, dry, tightly structured finish. Best drinking mid-2023+.
