Maison Noire Arneis 2022, Hawke’s Bay

Arneis from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 05-May-2023
Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is lifted and bright with aromas of pear and stonefruit filling the glass, along with honeysuckle, herb and a hint of spice. Medium-bodied, off-dry to taste, aromas of pear and nectarine intertwined with rambutan, honeysuckle, subtle fennel and delicate spice. The wine is refreshing with a cleansing, crisp acid line. Subtle pear skin textured phenolics contribute to a dusty mouthfeel and linger with spice to a dry, crisp finish. This clean and refreshing Arneis possesses lush fruit on a textural palate and a crisp finish. Match with baked camembert and spicy Korean food over the next 3 years. 12.5% alc. 18/20 pts (90 pts) May 2023 RRP $25
