Three Fates Albariño 2023


The Three Fates bring us this crisp, refreshing and flavoursome expression of Albariño. Fruit was hand picked on Easter Sunday just in the nick of time, before the ‘23 Cyclone hit the Hawkes Bay. Phew! Direct pressed and wild fermented, the result is energetic and bright.

The three fates are Holly Girven Russell, Hester Nesbitt and Casey Motley. In another case of old mate COVID causing a change of tack, these three decided to combine their respective wine growing experience, taking on the lease of a Maraekākaho, Hawkes Bay vineyard in 2020. It’s a trio of things we love here at BTB - talented people going out on their own, alternative grape varieties, and wines that are thoughtful, modern expressions of great New Zealand wine regions.
