Spade Oak Vineyard ‘Heart of Gold’ Albarino Gisborne 2012 12%
N: Lots of different fruit aromas: peach, mango, pineapple, gooseberry & apple; a lemon twist and then an herbal note – or is that spice!
P: A dry wine with flavours that reflect the nose. I like the lemon and crisp apple features on the finish. Med ++ acid, fresh, crisp and balanced. For me, best enjoyed with foods that have a summer ring about them – maybe mussels, calamari, polenta chips.
