2019 L.A.S. Vino Albino PNO

$45.00Price

Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the same vineyard with different amounts of co-fermentation, whole bunch pressing and skin contact blended together as one. Left to rest and mature in oak and amphora for 13 months before blending and bottling un-fined and un-filtered.

The colour of an summer sunset, every shade of orange and pink. The smell of strawberries and roses fresh from Nonnas garden. Buttered popcorn and watermelon on the table too. The taste of the sea; refreshing and alive. The funkiest, most complex, flavoursome rendition of the Albino PNO to date.

    "Sunset orange-red colour with hints of gold. Scents of Aperol, rhubarb and pungent ginger fill the nose. The dry palate is rich with flavour and texture, red cherry, forest berries and cardamom are bound as one with the sleek mouthfeel and tangy acidity. An uncommon but satisfying example of rosé"

    2019 L.A.S. Vino Albino PNO

    "Clear copper-crimson in colour. It's both textural and tense, its spice notes flying straight into pulpy, almost creamy, strawberried fruit flavours. There's plenty of tang here, a suggestion of smoke, a floral dynamic. It's just one of those wines that seems to have an electric charge running through it- and yet, or because of it the drinkability factor remains high."

    "Golden colour with a pink tease. Complex bouquet of strawberries, fresh figs, wild honey and peaches - the longer in the glass the more in reveals. Strong chardonnay influence on this wine - textured and concentrated mid - palate, it's powerful yet balanced. Stone fruits rather than classic red berries steering the ship. A compelling wine that re- defines the category. Deserves serious attention."

    "This is a lively blend of pinot noir and chardonnay. Both varieties have been matured and fermented separately with the wine going through a full secondary fermentation. Textured and highly flavoursome it is a beautiful rich and lavishly butterscotchy with a creamy, light, red fruit character. Love it... "

  • "Not a typical fun rosé... something more complex." 4/5 

     

    "Wonderful rosé! Mix of Chardonnay and pinot noir. Very distinct aroma full of strawberries and cream." 4/5

     

    "The Albino Pinot is a truly unique and wonderful creation. A flat table wine made out of 8 barrels of Pinot Noir and 2 of Chardonnay, the Pinot is pressed gently off its skins and both varieties fermented separately in barrel. No fining, no filtration, this is a seriously funked up Rosé." 4.5/5

     

    "Right up there among the top roses i've had.Apricot, melon nose (reminiscent of an orange wine id had previously). Not overly tannic, fairly balanced. Some depth and complexity (creamy, buttery). Would buy again!"  4.5/5

     

    "Strawberries and cream, hints of citrus and grapefruit. A familiar custard aroma with an exceptionally smooth finish. This wine is subtle and bold in all the right ways. Overall exceptional." 4.5/5 

     

    "Strawberries on the nose with a creamy finish. This is a particularly interesting rosé, it’s a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blend but in appearance it looked a bit like an orange wine. This was remarkably smooth and I can’t wait to have this again, delicious!" 4.5/5

     

    "The best rose tasted, frankly speaking I don't drink rose, but. this one is exceptional from talented winemaker of L. A. S Vino. Complex butter, strawberry, mineral, herbs and many more flavors. Outstanding!" 5/5
