Meltwater by Corofin Chenin Blanc 2022

$39.90 inc. GST

“Meltwater is a new collection of small batch organic wines with texture and interest … No formula here, just deliciously crisp and pure wines that express everything we love about Marlborough. The wines are named for the glacial meltwaters of the last ice age, which flowed from the high country of Marlborough, depositing sedimentary rock material as they criss-crossed the valleys below.” —Mike & Anna Paterson, Corofin


Tasting Note: Picked ripe but still with a citrus core and good acidity. As with the 2021, plenty of pithy, waxy dry extract which is texturally very appealing. Plenty of interest and seductive on release.
