Blackenbrook Nelson Pinot Gris (2020)

Estate-grown and hand-picked from mature vines, the powerful 2020 vintage (4.5*) was handled in a mix of tanks (90 per cent) and old oak barrels (10 per cent). Pale lemon/green, it is fleshy, with strong, vibrant pear, lychee and spice flavours, fresh acidity, slight sweetness (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), and a distinctly spicy finish. Best drinking 2022+.
