Amoise Chenin Blanc 2023


We’re seeing some outstanding Chenin Blanc coming off the Two Terraces estate in Hawkes Bay, a vineyard that has also just gained Biogro organic certification. Amy’s Chenin is certainly one of them, and it's gained quite the following. It’s rich in fruit, with green apple and tropical notes, with a beeswaxy, textural palate and a super dry, saline finish. The fruit is foot crushed and soaked on skins overnight before aging in both amphora and puncheon.

Starting Amoise in Hawkes Bay in 2018, Amy Farnsworth sources fruit from organic vineyards, producing expressive natural wines. They offer immediate drinking pleasure, with plenty to contemplate in the glass. As well as having incredible passion and enthusiasm, Amy’s depth of experience is amazing, having worked for the likes of Camille Giroud, Vietti, Alain Graillot, Marcel Lapierre, Brokenwood, Black Estate, Felton Road and Paritua.
