Easthope Family Winegrowers Two Terraces Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2021, Hawke’s Bay, NZD $35

Hand-picked, 100% whole bunch pressed, fermented in cast stone egg-shaped tanks.

Serious chenin blanc from a top vintage with savoury/nutty yeast, grapefruit, oyster shell and a hint of honeycomb. Richly textured wine that’s supported by ripe acidity and fine, drying tannins. Good cellaring potential. A great food wine. (Screwcap)
