Church Road Hawke's Bay Pinot Gris (2021)

Estate-grown in Pernod Ricard NZ's relatively cool, elevated, inland site at Matapiro, this consistently impressive and enjoyable, weighty, Alsace-style wine is bargain-priced. Already delicious, the 2021 vintage (4.5*) is attractively scented and full-bodied, with strong, ripe peach and pear flavours, gentle sweetness, moderate acidity and loads of drink-young charm. A top buy.
