Tua Marina Vineyards Marlborough Arneis 2017

Arneis from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 06-Aug-2018
Bright, very pale staw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is softly concentrated and packed with aromas of savoury white stonefruits and florals with stonefruit kernels and nutty notes, unveiling suggestions of oxidative complexities. The aromatics are harmonious and integrated. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a finely presented, firmly packed heart of savoury white stonefruits entwined with white florals and nutty layers. The fruit is moderately rich and is enlivened by fresh, crisp acidity lending vibrancy and a degree of underlying power and linearity. The wine flows along a fine-textured phenolic line, leading to a dry, thirst-quenching finish. This is a moderately rich, dry Arneis with savoury sronefruit, floral and nutty flavours with good mouthfeel, freshness and linearity. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 2+ years. Hand-picked fruit, WBP, and indigenous yeast fermented, half in stainless-steel and half in two seasoned oak barrels to 12.6% alc. and 4 g/L RS, the barrel portion undergoing batonnage. 17.5/20 Aug 2018 RRP $30.00
