Winemaker Notes

Pale green-tinged in appearance. Bright aromas of lemongrass, lime, herbs, grapefruit, Viognier spice and spring flowers. The palate is juicy yet elegant in structure, with a fine talcy texture and a beautiful array of citrus and sweet herb flavours and delicate floral notes. The wine finishes vibrant, mouth watering and flavour filled.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

This is clean and vibrant, with scents of lemon, fresh-cut apple and an earthier, bitter melon note. It finishes dry, with a hint of lemon-butter richness for roast fish.

Wild Rock
When we started Wild Rock, we promised ourselves that we were going to make some of New Zealand's most distinctive and affordable wines. We weren't going to be insular. We weren't going to hunker down in one place and just make the best wines that we could from that place. Oh no. What we wanted to produce - and what we do produce - are wines that represent the best flavours of New Zealand, from north to south, east to west.

Albarino

View all wine

Bright and aromatic with distinctive floral and fruity characteristics, Albariño has enjoyed a surge in popularity over the last couple of decades. This grape claims dual citizenship of both Spain (in the Rías Baixas region) and Portugal, where it is widely planted in the northwest and is known as Alvarinho. In recent years, plantings have increased throughout California.

In the Glass

Bursting with rich, ripe flavor, Albariño can show flavors of orange blossom, grapefruit, lime, apple, pear, melon, and white peach. It may also have notes of almond paste, fresh cut grass, jasmine, or geranium. The best examples boast zingy acidity and often a briny, mineral quality. It is typically fermented in stainless steel to preserve the purity of its fruity flavors, though oak-aged examples can provide a weighty yet refreshing alternative to Chardonnay with surprising potential for aging. Due to Albariño’s thick skins and large number of pips, it often shows a bit of bitterness on the palate.

Perfect Pairings

Albariño loves seafood, and can be paired with a variety of marine delicacies. Its distinctive waxy texture and lemony acidity make it a perfect pairing with fresh sardines, oysters, octopus, or squid.

Sommelier Secret

Albariño is considered an aromatic variety, and actually shares many chemical compounds with Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Muscat. If you enjoy these elegantly perfumed whites, chances are you’ll love Albariño.
