Astrolabe Kekerengu Coast Sleepers Vineyard Marlborough Albariño (2019)

Grown at Kekerengu, the 2019 vintage (4*) was hand-harvested and fermented and matured for five months in an even split of tanks and old French oak barrels. It has strong, very lively, citrusy, slightly appley flavours, fresh acidity, and a dry (2 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Full of youthful vigour, it's well worth cellaring to 2022+.
