Paddy Borthwick Wairarapa Pinot Gris (2021)

Estate-grown at Gladstone, in the northern Wairarapa, the vigorous 2021 vintage (5*) is the best yet. Bright, light lemon/green, it is fragrant, fleshy and vibrantly fruity, with fresh, concentrated, peachy, slightly spicy flavours and a dry (4.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), long finish. Already delicious, it should be at its best 2023+.
