Whitehaven Marlborough Pinot Gris (2021)

Offering good value, the powerful, youthful 2021 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard wine, estate-grown in the Wairau Valley. Bright, light lemon/green, it is fragrant and full-bodied, with strong, vibrant pear, lychee and spice flavours, lees-aging notes adding complexity, fresh acidity and a smooth, dry (2.9 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Best drinking mid-2023+.
