Askerne Hawke's Bay Pinot Gris (2021)

Full of personality, the 2021 vintage (5*) is an Alsace-style wine, sturdy, rich and rounded. Estate-grown, it was mostly handled in tanks, but 20 per cent of the blend was fermented in seasoned French oak casks. Already delicious, it is weighty and fleshy, with strong, ripe, peachy, spicy flavours, showing a distinct touch of complexity, and a very harmonious, off-dry (6.3 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Great value.
