We are aware that this tasting note starts with a lyrical ‘over the top’ bias statement; Central Otago’s beauty is captured in this HAWKSHEAD 2022 Pinot Blanc.
This wine is highly aromatic and OFF DRY in style. The nose detects a promise of fresh, crisp apple and pear aromas and those flow smoothly onto the palate. The discovery of an additional enticing hint of sweet spice and a zesty note of lemon elevates the wine to a more seriously detailed depth. Fine texture and balanced acidity combined with perfect fruit sweetness lead to a mouth-filling finish. This Pinot Blanc will get your attention without demanding it.
The 2022 Hawkshead Pinot Blanc is best enjoyed cool, not ice cold, around 15 *C.
Try it and let us know if you agree with our rather waxing lyrical about the wine.
