2014 Alana Martinborough Blanc

Alana Estate ‘White Blend’ Martinborough Blanc 2014  4 Stars

Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light lemon-gold hues, pale edged.  The nose is elegantly concentrated with fine and intense aromas of white stonefruit, white florals and subtle notes of fresh herbs and a little secondary waxiness.  This has a well-packed core to the bouquet.  Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a good heart of white stonefruit flavours entwined with delicate floral and herbal elements, and some waxiness.  The fruit is moderately rich, forming a concentrated heart with a suggestion of unctuousness.  The richness is countered by lacy acidity and a fine phenolic thread which guides the wine to an elegant finish.  This is a dry Gruner Veltliner/Riesling blend with stonefruit, herb and secondary waxy flavours on a palate with some richness.  Match with Mediterranean cuisine over the next 2-3 years.  Martinborough fruit, a blend of 60% Gruner Veltliner and 40% Riesling, fermented in stainless-steel to 11.6% alc. and dryness, the wine aged 4 months on lees.  17.5-/20  Mar 2018  RRP $28.00
