A good Pinot Gris, with a good tang fruit taste. I found initial acid but quickly rounded off, to an almost oily, clean palate. Don't think it would stand up to any strong food flavours. Priced about right, I don't think its worth the estimated retail price.the

My guests love it. A nice wine for drinking with nibbles before dinner. Grassy, not too sharp. Needs to be well chilled.

Alas, I cannot give first-person review as I really am not a fan of pinot's. However - my darling mum, for whom I purchased this wine - thought it a very fine, tasty pinot gri! The positives: Mum rated it for me on taste, colour, general slurpability and when she would drink it. Taste - no better, but def no worse than most pinot's. Colour - all I got was she liked it lol. Slurpability and when she would drink it. Easy to drink and anytime between 5pm and end of dinner. Now as I was the one pouring the wine, I saw that she was drinking this a bit faster than the last pinot I purchased, so I'm going to take that as a very positive slurpable result! Negatives: I don't drink pinot's so can't enjoy the wine. Oh well,at least a thumbs up and buy more from mum!

Another highly drinkable wine. Took it to a friend's house, she liked it and ordered some for herself straight away. Good value.

4.5 Stars - "This is delightfully appealing on the nose displaying ripe pear, peach, mango and floral characters. The palate is equally attractive with succulent mouthfeel and elegant fruit richness, leading to a lingering smooth finish. At its best: now to 2017." - Sam Kim
Light straw, with a bright clarity. Lifted varietal aromatics of pear and quince fruit flavours. These are underlined with hints of nougat and nutmeg spice. This is a medium bodied wine with a rich, creamy texture to carry the pure fruit and spice flavours. These persist on the long, clean finish.

Nelson has a reputation as the home of aromatic wines in New Zealand and this wine is perfect testament to that. A highly scented, fragrant wine with lovely weight and intensity of rose petals, ginger & lychee followed with a luscious palate and a smooth, lasting finish. A true aromatic wine witch matches perfectly with Asian dishes or blue cheese & spiced figs. Perfect for your local Asian BYO restaurant.
