What’s in the glass tonight November 8th

Blackenbrook Nelson Pinot Gris 2014

Blackenbrook Pinot Gris Nelson 2013 – $$

In the weekend I checked out an instore tasting of Blackenbrook wines hosted by proprietor Ursula Schwarzenbach. They are building a nice rep for aromatic white wines – I tried their current releases of sav blanc, gewurtz, chard, rose and pinot noir, but selected this wine for the table tonight…

Pale yellow in the glass. 14.5% and very long legged.

Lovely lifted aromatics. Hints of spice, peach and stone fruit blossom.

This is a powerful Gris. Loads of flavour, fresh, and really packs a fruit punch. Peaches, pears in the mouth, along with golden delicious apples. Honey and spice tickle the back of the throat. Long. Really good. 4+

This was awarded Champion Wine in Class at the Bragato Wine Awards 2014.
