Waimea Nelson Albariño 2015 $25 ★★★★★AB high res

Albariño is a signature Spanish white variety that clearly loves its new home in Nelson by the looks of things.  The team at Waimea have seriously outdone themselves here with this musk and nectarine scented wine, bursting with tangy pear, peach and apple flavours and finishing with lovely crushed stone minerality.  It’s a bracingly fresh yet fruity white wine that is an absolute star with seared scallops drizzled with lemon.  www.waimeaestates.co.nz
