Blackenbrook Family Reserve Nelson Gewurztraminer (2019)

Still youthful, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) is a softly mouthfilling wine, estate-grown and hand-picked. Bright, light lemon/green, it is weighty and fleshy, with strong, vibrant pear, lychee and spice flavours, gentle sweetness (12 grams/litre of residual sugar), and a touch of tannin. Best drinking mid-2022+.
