Delta Pinot Blanc 2018, Marlborough

Pinot Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Feb-2021
Bright, light yellow with a green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is soft, with the purity of apple, pear, underlined with a hint of honey, lemon and floral. Medium-light bodied, fresh aroma of lemon zest, sugared grapefruit, apple and pear have a fine core, entwined with floral element and a light note of honey. The mouthfeel is smooth-flowing with an oily texture; acidity is seamless and integrated, flows along a savoury edge. This is a well-rounded Pinot Blanc with a fresh core of fruit, oily textured and a seamless acidity flow. Match with scallops and pork gyoza over the next 2 years. Fruit from a single vineyard alongside the Waihopai River, cool-fermented to 12.5% alc, 5 g/l RS, left on lees for a period of time. Vegan friendly. 18+/20 (91 pts) Feb 2021 RRP $25
