Whitehaven Marlborough Pinot Gris (2019)

Still unfolding, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard, Wairau Valley wine, mostly hand-picked, then tank-fermented and matured on its yeast lees. Bright, light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling and strongly varietal, with deep pear and lychee flavours, slightly spicy notes, gentle acidity and a dryish (6.2 grams/litre of residual sugar), smooth finish.
