Tua Marina Marlborough Arneis 2016

Arneis from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-Nov-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with light golden tints, a little lighter on the rim. The bouquet is firm and elegantly concentrated with deep and well-packed aromas of savoury white and yellow stonefruits with near-chalky, nutty and waxy layers and a suggestion of oxidative detail, Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a good core of savoury white and yellow stonefruits with nutty detail and a layering of waxy and oxidative hints. The fruit has good depth and the palate has light textures, and is driven by a little alcohol power, providing good linearity. The wine possesses presence and carries to a finely concentrated, lingering, nutty finish. This is a dry Arneis with savoury white and yellow stonefruit flavours with nutty notes and subtle waxy and oxidative detail on a light-textured, linear palate with good weight. Match with antipasto and tapas over the next 3 years. Hand-picked fruit, WBP, 50% fermented in tank and 50% in seasoned oak, all by indigenous yeasts to 13.2% alc. and 3 g/L RS, the barrel portion undergoing batonnage and all of the wine undergoing MLF. Certified BioGro organic. 17.5-/20 Dec 2017 RRP $30.00
