Forrest Estate Marlborough Albariño 2022 $28

Ultra-vibrant nectarine, apple, lime and white peach will up and punch you in the kisser with every sip. The acidity is whipcrack sharp, like swallowing a sword, yet the underlying citrus and peachy plushness smooths and soothes it all out. It’s like an incredibly tasty exfoliation for your oesophagus and absolutely reinforces why albariñ0, this stunning little Spanish white wine is quite possibly the great new hope for New Zealand white wine.
