Terrace Edge North Canterbury Pinot Gris (2021)

Certified organic, the very ageworthy 2021 vintage (4.5*) is a youthful Waipara wine, mostly (60 per cent) fermented in seasoned oak barrels; the rest was handled in tanks. Bright, light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling, with strong, vibrant peach and pear flavours, gentle spicy notes, a hint of honey, a splash of sweetness (14 grams/litre of residual sugar), and excellent delicacy and depth.
