Blackenbrook Nelson Pinot Rosé (2020)

The attractive 2020 vintage (4.5*) was made from hand-picked Nelson Pinot Noir, partly (9 per cent) aged in old oak barrels. Made in a dryish style (5 grams/litre of residual sugar), it is a light pink/red, full-bodied wine with ripe, berryish, plummy, slightly spicy flavours, showing excellent depth, balanced acidity and a rounded finish. Good drinking for the summer of 2020–21.
