Winemaking

We crafted this wine to reflect the “Landmark” – the attributes and characteristics of the oldest planted New Zealand Albariño vineyard from grower Doug Bell. Produced from vines grown dryland on fertile loam over heavy clay soils, the Landmark Albariño was fermented in 60% stainless steel and 40% Acacia of which 67% was new and 33% 2-year-old puncheons. Yeast selection used enhances mouth feel, floral and varietal characters.

Post ferment the wine was held on lees for 4 months to further enhance palate richness and was left with some residual sugar to balance the grapes naturally high acidity.

Expert Opinions

2023 vintage

90 Points (4.5 Stars)

"Bright and youthfully expressed, the bouquet shows rockmelon, apricot, subtle spice and jasmine nuances, followed by a finely textured palate that’s juicy and vibrant. Beautifully framed by crisp acidity, finishing long and zesty. At its best: now to 2026."
