Brokenwood Pinot Gris 2020

Because 2020 was basically a shitshow for many viticultural regions of Australia, Brokenwood looked to Currency Creek in South Australia for fruit rather than their usual haunt of Beechworth in N-E Victoria.

Brokenwood, Pinot Gris, Fleurieu Peninsula, 2020

Pale hue with just-green highlights. Initially a little reductive before Nashi pear (flesh and skin), Bosc pear, crushed cress, white nectarine, hint of honeysuckle sweetness and long table candle.  Solid varietal spice and a little weight through the body. Long and dry with good acid drive to balance the light phenolic grip.  An easy match for pork jowl terrine or chicken schintzel.

RRP: $30
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
