Easthope Family Winegrowers Two Terraces Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2020, Hawke’s Bay

Chenin Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 19-Oct-2021
Bright, even, pale straw-yellow with some depth. The bouquet is alluring, gently filled the glass with stonefruit, pineapple, citrus zest entwined with ginger and magnolia. Medium-light bodied, aromas of apricot, pineapple, melded with lemon and its zest, along with ginger, blossom and stony minerals. The fruit shows purity and is poised and concentrated, leaving a long, lingering finish. Mouthwatering acidity provides focus, persists on the palate along a crunchy mineral line, slightly chalky in texture. This is an elegant Chenin Blanc features pristine fruit, acid precision and minerals. Match with oysters and blue cod with beurre blanc over the next 5+ years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, wild-fermented to 13.5% alc, matured in concrete egg. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Oct 2021 RRP $40
