Akaroa Winery ‘Cuvee Blanc’ Banks Peninsula Canterbury 2015

Blended White from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 03-Sep-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale edged. This has a light, fresh nose of white stonefruits entwined with yellow florals and hints of nuts. This is finely concentrated and tightly bound, revealing some lanolin notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright and lively flavours of white stonefruits along with nutty notes and suggestions of florals, unfolding lanolin and waxy nuances. The mouthfeel is fresh and lively with bright acidity, and some underlying power and drive provides linearity. The wine flows along a very light, fine-textured line, leading to a bright, refreshing, nutty finish. This is a bright and refreshing blended white with stonefuit and nutty flavours and good linearity. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and poultry over the next 2-3 years. A blend of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Riesling, WBP and co-fermented in barrel to 11.6% alc. and 3.0 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months in seasoned oak undergoing 100% MLF. 16.0+/20 Sep 2017 RRP $25.00
