Amoise 2020 Hawke's Bay Chenin Blanc

A beautiful single-vineyard expression of Chenin Blanc showing great potential for the variety in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, which currently only has 4.8 total hectares in the appellation. The Two Terraces Vineyard is in its third year of conversion to organic certification which was planted in 2016 on ancient river terraces. The fruit is fermented fully dry and goes through full malo naturally. On the nose are notes of yellow flower, yellow peach, white pepper, and lime zest. The palate is bright and fresh, but far from teeth-ripping acidity, with a long, textural finish. Michelle DeWyngaert

Arona 2020 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Classically zippy and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough New Zealand! Arona is based only half a mile away from the coast which means their vineyards feel more wind whipping through, keeping the temperature down than anywhere else in the region. This means they can be farmed more sustainably with less disease pressure, and it also makes their wines super fresh and vibrant. The nose brings you to a tropical place with a breeze from the ocean, notes of papaya, lemon and grapefruit pith and freshly cut lemongrass, and on the palate are ripe green and yellow apples, pink grapefruit juice and a tart, slightly bitter finish.  Drink this after a long day at work to refresh your palate and spirit, and/or with anything that needs a spritz of citrus like grilled swordfish or a summery salad.  Michelle DeWyngaert
