Blackenbrook Vineyard Nelson Gewürztraminer (2019)

A consistently attractive wine. Estate-grown and hand-picked, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) was mostly handled in tanks, but 9 per cent of the blend was matured in old barrels. Light lemon/green, it is gently perfumed and mouthfilling, with peach, pear, lychee and ginger flavours, showing excellent delicacy and freshness, and a distinctly spicy, off-dry (6 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Best drinking 2021+.
