2019 ESK VALLEY Winemaker's Reserve Chenin Blanc 75cl (Hawkes Bay, New Zealand)
Style - Crisp
Grapes - 100% Chenin Blanc
Tasting - The gorgeously lifted bouquet shows summer peach, baked apple and toasted spice notes with a hint of beeswax. It's concentrated and wonderfully weighted on the palate, offering terrific fruit power and bright acidity, leading to an impressively long expansive finish.
FYI: Chenin Blanc used to the be party (bulk) juice of NZ, but when taken seriously it can make stunning wines like with Esk Valley.
