Opawa Marlborough Pinot Gris (2020)

Grown in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys, this wine is a 'lighter, crisper' style than its Nautilus Estate stablemate. Tank-fermented and briefly lees-aged, the 2020 vintage (4*) is full-bodied and fleshy, with fresh, generous peach, pear, lychee and spice flavours, dry (4 grams/litre of residual sugar), smooth and very harmonious. It's already drinking well.
