Mission Marlborough Pinot Gris (2020)

Offering outstanding value, the 2020 vintage (4*) was principally (85 per cent) estate-grown in the Awatere Valley; some Hawke's Bay grapes (15 per cent of the blend) were added to enhance the wine's 'weight' and 'richness'. Bright, light lemon/green, it is a ripely scented, full-bodied, Alsace-style wine, with good concentration of fresh peach, pear and spice flavours, and a finely balanced, off-dry (7 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Best drinking mid-2020+.
