To find Briar Ridge winery you'll need to venture out into the Hunter Valley and off the beaten track. Once you locate it, you'll find a small boutique and family owned vineyard who've been making wine here since 1972. Even though it's located in the Hunter Valley, speak to the winemakers and they'll quickly tell you its not the Hunter, its Mount View. This unique part of the Hunter has its own little unique microclimate which differentiates it from the rest of the region, and it's this climate allows a wonderfully unique range of grapes to be grown.

With a mix of varied soil types, elevation and aspect, each variety has been carefully hand selected to suit a specific vineyard. All the winemaking is done using a hands off approach that lets the fruit do the talking. With a mix of natural yeasts, older oak and attentive winemaking, the wines are crystal clear and precise, and they really do represent their Mount View origins.

Native to Spain, Albariño has found a little niche here in Briar Ridge, and they're only one of a handful of wineries using it. True to form this Albarino has all the hallmarks typical of its style utilising a tiny slice of older oak with the majority stainless steel to retain varietal purity and a vibrant stone fruit character.

Tasting Note:
This exciting wine is beautifully fragranced, packed with lemon zest and tropical notes, and balanced with texture and a richness from yeast lees. It makes a great match with seafood dishes, as well as mildly spicy foods like chicken satay or nasi goreng. 

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and No tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
