Hawkshead Central Otago Pinot Blanc (2021)

The youthful 2021 vintage (4*) is a single-vineyard wine, grown in the Cromwell Basin, tank-fermented and matured on its yeast lees for four months. Bright, light lemon/green, it is attractively scented, fresh and full-bodied, with strong, vibrant pear, peach, apple and spice flavours, a touch of complexity and a smooth (8 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Already enjoyable, it should be at its best 2023+.
