Tua Marina Vineyards Marlborough Arneis 2015

Arneis from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 01-Apr-2016
Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh with oft aromas of bright white and yellow stonefruits entwined with apple and nutty elements, unfolding nuances of flinty lees and minerals, herbs and a suggestion of lanolin. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate possesses good depth and concentration of vibrant white stonefruit flavours along with subtle herb, nutty, waxy and lanolin notes. The wine has drive and follows a fine phenolic thread with fresh acidity lending firmness and linearity. The wine carries to a crisp, refreshing finish of stonefruits and nuts. This is a fresh and lively, softly concentrated Arneis with stonefruit, nutty and lanolin notes. Match with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2-3 years. Arneis fruit fermented in two seasoned oak and two stainless-steel barrels to 13.5% alc. and <2 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees with batonnage. 1.022 bottles made. 17.5/20 Mar 2016 RRP $28.00
