Tohu ‘Single Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Blanc 2016

Pinot Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Oct-2017
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with aromas of white stonefruits and citrus fruit with earthy and herb suggestions, unfolding creamy barrel-ferment elements with nutty and toasty oak and nuances of lemon-curd MLF. The aromatics form a deep hearted core. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a well-concentrated and deeply packed core with flavours of white stonefruits, creamy barrel-ferment, and nutty and toasty oak. The oaking and inputs feature over the fruit somewhat. But the palate and flavours are full of interest, showing presence, and the wine carries to a lingering finish of stonefruits and oak. This is a flavoursome Chardonnay-like Pinot Blanc with subtle stonefruit flavours with creamy and nutty oak and some MLF richness. Match with roasted poultry, pork and veal dishes over the next 3-4 years. This is the first commercial release of this wine. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Araroa’ block in the company’s Awatere vineyard, from vines planted in 2010, WBP and indigenous yeast barrel-fermented in seasoned oak to 13.0% alc. and 3.4 g/L RS, the wine aged 10 months in oak, undergoing batonnage and 100% MLF. 17.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $24.95
