Bendigo Hills Pinot Blanc 2019
- Pinot Blanc
Bendigo Hills is a project from the esteemed mofo fave, Rock Ferry in Central Otago - this wine coming from up north in the region of Marlborough. They treat the vines with the utmost care, creating wines that are a true expression of the terroir, through organic farming and biodynamic viticulture.
This is their pinot blanc and what a delightful surprise it is! Pinot blanc is a delicious white cousin to pinot noir, and the grapes for this wine were hand harvested, so only the creme of the crop made the final press. After being partially barrel fermented, the wine displays a rounded mouthfeel and nuttiness, whilst also retaining purity and freshness of zesty lemon peel and fragrant jasmine. Sit back and relax as you slurp this down in the afternoon sun.
“Elegant and delightfully expressed, showing apricot, fig, lemon peel and jasmine aromas on the nose, followed by a succulent palate displaying beautifully rounded mouthfeel and refreshing acidity. Harmonious and delightfully poised. Certified organic. At its best: now to 2024.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
