Hawkshead Pinot Blanc 2022, Central Otago

Pinot Blanc from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 03-Mar-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is pure with a good depth of stonefruit, apple and citrus zest aromas entwined with floral, cream and spice. Medium-bodied, peach, apple, and lemon zest aromas have an elegant core adorned by floral, white pepper and nutmeg. The refined mouthfeel is fine-textured and creamy, carrying spice throughout with refreshing acidity. This Pinot Blanc is refined and textural shows purity and a fine acid line. Match with pork dumplings and steamed fish over the next 3-5 years. Fruit from Cromwell basin, whole bunch pressed,s fermented with indigenous yeast, rested on lees for 4 months in 70% stainless steel, 30% older French barriques, 13.5% alc, 5 g/l RS. GVegan friendly. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Mar 2023 RRP $34
