Astrolabe Marlborough Pinot Gris (2019)

The 2019 vintage (4.5*) was grown principally (60 per cent) in the Awatere Valley, but also in the Wairau Valley and at Kekerengu. Mostly hand-harvested, it is a bright, light lemon/green, full-bodied wine, with good intensity of vibrant, citrusy, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, a touch of complexity, and a lingering, basically dry (4 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Drink now or cellar.
