De La Terre Gracie 2016, Hawke’s Bay

Blended White from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 30-Oct-2023
Bright, yellow gold with a light green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is rich and toasty, with aromas of roasted hazelnut, hay, popcorn, citrus preserve and flinty elements. Medium-full bodied, aromas of citrus preserve and melon underlined popcorn, toasted hazelnut, spice and flint. The oily mouthfeel accompanies the rich palate, packed with aged characters and complexity. Enlivening acidity provides freshness and vitality to a sustained finish. Match with pistachio-crusted grouper and grilled pork chops over the next 3 years. A blend of Chardonnay and Viognier, 13.7% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Oct 2023 RRP $26
