Maxim Hawke’s Bay Chenin Blanc 2016

Chenin Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 03-Jul-2017
Light golden-yellow colour. The nose is fresh, light, pure and expressive with real clarity. White florals and stonefruit aromas, a little apple and dried hay in the background. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, this has an elegantly concentrated core of white florals and white stonefruits, a little hint of nuts and apples. The palate possesses a fine phenolic thread, but is essentially carried by the acidity. The textures and acidity flow through to the taut finish. This will keep well for 4-5 years at least. Fruit from Moteo and Korokipo, 44% fermented wild in old oak and 56% in tank, to 12.5% alc. and >1 g/L RS, the wine undergoing batonnage. 18.0-/20 Jun 2017 RRP $28.95
