Pinot Gris 2020 - Black Market Deal #36358
Textbook pinot gris from Nelson in the north of New Zealand’s wild South Island. The wine spends three months on lees to build texture, flavour and complexity, delivering that slippery gris style with fresh orchard pear and white peach notes. The aromatics are bang on the money - with jasmine, rosewater and fresh herbs. There’s no way that this could be mistaken for a lighter, leaner pinot grigio style. It’s far too curvy and voluptuous for that, in classic Kiwi gris style.
“Offering terrific fruit purity and vibrancy, the wine shows honeydew melon, fresh pear, floral and Gala apple characters, leading to a wonderfully rounded palate that delivers excellent vibrancy and persistency. It's succulent and flavoursome, delightfully framed by refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2023.”

Nelson, right at the top of the south island, vies for New Zealand's best wine region. Its wine history dates back to 1800s German settlers, but the modern industry kicked off in the 1970s. It boasts a vibrant arts and café scene, and although you will see New Zealand's usual suspects (pinot, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and aromatic whites), many of the wines are as eclectic as the people who live here.
