Blackenbrook 2019 Family Reserve Nelson Pinot Noir

I first tasted this wine several months ago not long after it was bottled and thought  it was an exceptional wine at the time, with extra time in the bottle my opinion hasn't changed. While Pinot Noir can be light and floral this example is a delicious, powerful wine with lots of character and intrigue. From the initial intense fruit to the layers of smoky oak and juicy acidity this is a determined wine, it has presence and character.

Blackenbrook 2019 Family Reserve Nelson Chardonnay

This Blackenbrook Vineyards Reserve Chardonnay represents a full style with obvious oak that balances the fruit intensity nicely. Lovely butterscotch flavours upfront are enticing but it's the balance of intense flavours, oak and ripe acidity that makes this wine special.

Blackenbrook 2019 Family Reserve Nelson Gewurztraminer

This reserve gewurztraminer from Blackenbrook Vineyards is a wine with spicy character, ginger heat is wrapped around delicate cooked pear flavours. The wine is medium/dry in style with about 12 gm residual sugar. The high natural sugar level has also resulted in a firm alcohol level. Rather than being overly intense and rich this is bright and fresh while retaining classic Gewurztraminer flavour.

Blackenbrook Pinot Noir Rose 2020

The perfectly ripe fruit is balanced with juicy acidity and a touch of astringency in the long finish. For a dry wine this outstanding Rose is richly textured and a perfect food wine and is dangerously easy to drink.

Blackenbrook Pinot Gris 2020

The rich pear flavours are balanced with nice spicy phenolics and delightful acidity. The balance between intense fruit characters, juicy acid and the dry finish is a tightrope walked with precision. 

Blackenbrook Pinot Blanc 2020

The beautiful, weighty texture on the palate hints at the intensity of flavour to come, flavours that reflect the aromas. The flavours are mouth-wateringly delicious flavours and are balanced with a touch of freshness.

Blackenbrook Sauvignon Blanc 2020

This Nelson Sauvignon Blanc is simply packed with bright, clean fruit flavours wrapped around a beautiful ripe-acid backbone. The streak of acidity that runs through the palate is crisp and juicy.
