2019 Hunky Dory The Tangle White Blend

Goofy name for sure, but I promise you the 2019 Hunky Dory The Tangle White Blend is a seriously delicious wine. Recently rated 93 points by Wine Enthusiast, this DRY white blend from Marlborough, New Zealand is super.

Hunky Dory is the second label from New Zealand’s highly respected Huia Vineyards, and their Tangle White Blend comes from their certified organic, estate vineyards. Fermented COMPLETELY DRY, this super aromatic and crisp white is going to make a lot of folks happy.

Let’s start with that review, as it sums this wine up quite nicely. “This organic white blend is part of Huia’s every day range, but it’s every bit as good as many of its own label wines. It’s pale lemon in hue, with a perfume of fresh peach, pineapple, orange, ginger and heady florals like jasmine and hibiscus billowing from the glass. Soft mineral nuances add complexity. The palate takes it up a notch: dry, textural, laced with bright, prickly acidity and a finish like candied ginger. Expressive of both place and varietals, all at a bargain price.” – Wine Enthusiast – Editor’s Choice

So what’s in it? A lot! This rather unconventional blend of Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Gewurztraminer is fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel. All of the grapes come from Huia’s meticulously farmed estate vineyards in the Wairau Valley, in the northern part of Marlborough. After fermentation, it is aged on the lees for 5 months and bottled with minimal additions. It also happens to be vegan and vegetarian friendly!

And man, this would be awesome with a spicy veggie curry. There’s a ton of exotic fruit and floral character here, and those attributes lend themselves beautifully to spicy Asian fare. Even better, it comes bottled with a screw cap for easy opening, and it goes down a little too easy.

I’m gonna’ keep this write-up short and sweet. Another in a string of fabulous summer white finds, this is sensational. Stock up on this one for joyful sipping with or without food.
