Wine Review: This white gold colored Pinot Gris from New Zealand opens with an Anjou pear bouquet with a hint of wet stone and faint banana. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly viscous and pleasantly acidic. This wine does a nice job coating your mouth. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused Granny Smith apple and Anjou pear blend with notes of lime and white pepper. I also detected a hint of ginger as well. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity are very nicely prolonged. This Pinot Gris would pair well with steamed mussels with a white wine garlic broth. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Look: Pale straw colour. Smell: Wonderfully lifted aromatics of pear and Braeburn apples with pleasant hints of spice. Taste: The palate is well balanced with ripe fruit flavours of pears, honeysuckle, and hints of orange. It finishes with a soft, round mouthfeel. Eat: An ideal wine by itself or paired with antipasto, fresh seafood, or Southeast Asian cuisine. Cellar: Two to three years with confidence.

Organic status: not organic
