Left Field Hawke's Bay Pinot Gris (2021)

Offering good value, the finely balanced 2021 vintage (4*) is a blend of Pinot Gris (86 per cent) and Pinot Noir (14 per cent), with a faintly pink hue (from some fermentation 'on skins'). Full-bodied, it is open and expressive in its youth, with very good depth of peach, pear and spice flavours, fresh acidity and a slightly off-dry finish.
