Blackenbrook Pinot Blanc 2021, Nelson

Pinot Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 01-Oct-2021
Bright, even, pale straw-yellow colour. The nose is softly full, filled the glass with aromas of apple, pear, citrus and its zest melded with a white flower bouquet and a hint of spice. Medium-bodied, brilliant concentration on the palate, fronting apple, pear, grapefruit zest aromas, a layer of delicate pink peppercorn, white floral lingers with a touch of honey. The mouthfeel is oily, almost unctuous, elegantly carries the spice throughout the palate with the support of mouthwatering acidity. The fruit had excellent concentration, filled the palate with weight and depth of flavour. This is an excellent example of Pinot Blanc with a concentrated varietal character and a lush mouthfeel. Match with Thai style steamed fish and pork chops over the next 5 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, cool-fermented to 14% alc, 6g/l RS, extended lees contact, 5% oak-aged, unfined. Vegan friendly. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Oct 2021 RRP $29
