Merekara Wines Les Selectionnés Chenin Blanc 2022, Marlborough

Chenin Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 22-Mar-2023
Bright, pale lemon, lightly hazy, even colour throughout. The nose is soft and fragrant, penetrating citrus, stonefruit, blossom and honey aromas. Medium-full bodied, aromas of lemon and apricot entwined with wildflowers, honey and a hint of spiced tea. Textured phenolics contribute a savoury, textural mouthfeel. Lively calm acidity carries a dry lingering finish. This dry Chenin Blanc shows a citrus fruit core, spiced tea adorned by wildflowers and a textured, dry finish. Match with goat's cheese ravioli and cured kingfish over the next 3-4 years. Handpicked, cold settled, foot stomp, then whole bunch pressed, wild fermented in barrel and puncheon to 13% alc, 1.2 g/l RS, underwent MLF, aged in same vessels for 10 months. 953 bottles produced. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Mar 2023 RRP $39.50
