Kerner Marlborough Pinot Blanc 2010

Pinot Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-May-2014
Hand-picked fruit, WBP and fully barrel-fermented in seasoned French oak barriques by indigenous yeasts to 14.3% alc. and 2.6 g/L RS, the wine aged 7 months on lees, the wine in barrel for 11 months. Bright, full, light golden-yellow with lemon-green hues. This has a full and soft bouquet with a complex amalgam of white and yellow stonefruits along with nutty oak and savoury secondary mineral and earthy elements. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, savoury white and yellow stonefruit flavours form a fulsome, rounded palate. The fruit is enhanced by complexing nutty, smoky oak layers, with the sweetness and succulence providing accessibility and openness. Lively acidity is present, and the mouthfeel has good energy that carries the palate to a dry finish with nutty and toast nuances. This is a fulsome and complex dry Pinot Blanc with nutty, toasty oak prevalent. Serve with grilled and roasted seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 2 years. 17.5/20 May 2014 RRP $28.99
