Millton Clos de Ste Anne La Bas Chenin Blanc 2021, Gisborne

Chenin Blanc from New Zealand - Gisborne
Review Date : 13-Jun-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow gold. The nose is elegant and voluminous, packed with ripe stone fruit, citrus, soft talcum and minerals. Medium-full bodied, aromas of ripe nectarine, peach entwined with lemon peel, a touch of ginger and chalky minerality. The flavour has depth and length, a slightly waxy mouthfeel broadens the palate with spice and lively acidity drives a long, vibrant finish. This Chenin Balcn shows concentration with good energy with layers of spice, ripe fruit and an enticing texture. Match with roasted ham and shrimp over the next 10 years. Whole bunch pressed to 600-litre demi muids and aged sur lie for 18 months. 14% alc. Biodynamic certified. 19+/20 pts (96 pts) June 2023 RRP $90
