Old vine chenin

Margrain Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2016, Martinborough, NZD $65

Delicious chenin blanc with green apple, lime and salty, mineral flavours together with a suggestion of tree fruits. Knife-edged acidity reacts against subtle sweetness to build a lovely tension in the wine and promote a refreshingly tangy finish. Will age superbly. (Screwcap)
