Albarino

Albarino

$25.00

Albarino hails from the cool climate of Galacia, a region situated on the Atlantic coast in Spain's northwest. Noted wine critic, Robert Parker, called Albarino, "one of Spain's great wine gifts to the world."

This is a new variety to North Canterbury, but seems to be settling in very nicely. We believe that with our hands-on viticulture, organic practices and ancient minerally soils we can make something pretty special with this varietal.

The grapes are meticulously picked and then fermented in aged oak barrels for added texture and complexity. Albarino is characterised by its classic peach and citrus tones, zesty acidity, hint of minerality and floral bouquet.

Wine list

Albarino

Hails from the cool climate of Galacia, a region situated in the northwest of Spain. Planted in 2013 it is settling into our site extremely well. We think it has huge potential.

Pinot Gris

We aim to produce a rich, complex, aromatic style. Cropping levels are kept low to ensure the fruit is concentrated. Varietal flavours are accumulated through hang time on the vines well into Autumn.

Pinot Noir

The combination of our meticulous hand work and ancient mineral soils gives a depth of dark fruit with layers of earthy complexity and spice.

Riesling - Liquid Geography

Of all the whites grapes Riesling tends to change its character according to the landscape in which it is grown. Therefore, it can be thought of as 'Liquid Geography".

Rosé

This Rose is unique because it is made from mostly Syrah grapes. This gives the wine a silken texture and spicy notes. It also has the classic strawberries and cream flavours.

Saint Laurent

Genetically it is thought to be a ‘wild cousin’ of Pinot Noir. Also known as a ‘gentle giant’ – this is because the wine is big in colour but on the palate it’s gentle with beautiful smooth, silky tannins.

Syrah

Syrah is a favoured variety at Terrace Edge. The unique site lends itself to high quality production. We are rewarded with a complex wine, with spice, velvety tannins and great finesse.

Riesling - Classic

The aim with our 'classic' is to make a wine which has varietal purity. It's just off-dry with beautiful citrus characters.
