A bowl of freshly picked stone fruit – fleshy whitepeaches, plump golden apricots and sun-ripened nectarines – a wine with rich, ripe aromas balanced by a floral purity. The palate is luscious and textural, reminiscent of homemade apple pie with rich buttery pastry and a faint hint of cinnamon. This is a wine with considerable depth and richness.
Wine Enthusiast 92 points - Struck flint and slightly smoky aromas give way to flavors of honeyed peaches and toasted nuts-not full on, like a Chardonnay might be, but restrained yet lush at the same time. In only a few years, this has quickly become one of New Zealand’s best Pinot Gris. - Editor’s Choice (Oct 2013)
