JTW 2018 Marlborough Pinot Gris

Grown in the Awatere and Wairau valleys, the light lemon/green 2018 vintage (4.5*) was mostly handled in tanks; 5 per cent of the blend was oak-aged. Produced in a dry style (2 grams/litre of residual sugar), it is attractively scented and full-bodied, with vibrant, youthful flavours of pears, apples and lychees, gentle spicy notes, a touch of complexity and a smooth, lingering finish. Best drinking 2020+.
