Smith & Sheth Cru Heretaunga Albariño (2021)

The highly refined, youthful 2021 vintage (5*) is a single-vineyard wine, hand-harvested at Bridge Pa, and fermented and lees-aged for 10 months in oak barriques (mostly older.) 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+.
