Opawa Marlborough Pinot Gris (2021)

Grown in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys, this good, all-purpose wine is made in a 'lighter, crisper' style than its Nautilus Estate stablemate. Tank-fermented and briefly lees-aged, the 2021 vintage (4*) is attractively scented and vibrantly fruity, with strong pear and spice flavours, balanced acidity and a basically dry finish. Best drinking mid-2022+.
