Marsden Bay of Islands Pinot Gris (2021)

This Kerikeri, Northland winery produces an impressive Pinot Gris. The 2021 vintage (4.5*) is already delicious. Handled in a mix of stainless steel tanks (60 per cent) and seasoned oak barrels (40 per cent), it has a fragrant, gently spicy bouquet. Mouthfilling, it has generous, ripe, lively peach, pear, lychee and spice flavours, with a subtle seasoning of oak adding complexity and richness, and a dry (4 grams/litre of residual sugar), very harmonious finish. Best drinking 2023+.
