Pyramid Valley 2013 Growers Collection Moteo Ridge Vineyard Chenin Blanc (Hawke's Bay)

Editors' Choice

This wine's wet-wool aromas are more characteristic of the grape's Loire Valley origins than any New World example I can remember tasting. Add notes of pineapple, truffle and honey, and this is a surefire winner. It's rich and slightly oily in texture, and even a bit off dry (13 g/L of residual sugar), but with a long, acid-lined finish. I'd even consider adding a bottle or two to the cellar to see how it develops. Joe Czerwinski
