Tua Marina Vineyards Marlborough Arneis 2014

Arneis from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Mar-2016
Brilliant light straw-yellow colour with slight lemon hues, lighter edged. This has a fresh and steely, elegantly presented nose of white stonefruits melded with herbal and savoury nutty layers at the core, the aromatics showing the beginning of softening secondary development. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, soft and moderately deep flavours of white stonefruits and nuts provide a rounded mouthfeel. Light, lacy acidity provides energy and tension and the wine has linearity, carrying the wine easily to a soft and gentle finish of stonefruits and nuts. This is a soft and evenly presented Arneis with stonefruit and savoury nutty flavours. It is drinking well now and will match seafood and poultry dishes over the next 2 years. Arneis fruit fermented in a seasoned oak barrel and a stainless-steel barrel to 13.5% alc. and <2 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees with batonnage. 508 bottles made 16.5+/20 Mar 2016 RRP $28.00
