91 points/4.5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 
Pinot Gris Winery of the Year - New York International Wine Competition
"Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour with a little depth, paler edged. This has a light nose that opens in volume to show yellow stonefruits, a hint of apricot with nuances of pears and exotic florals, building to show moderate depth. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has an elegant core of yellow stonefruits with notes of pears, apricots and honeysuckle, with lifted floral detail. The flavours are up-front and flow along a very fine textured line with balanced, integrated acidity. The flavours recede a little as the wine carries to a lingering, nuanced finish. This is an elegant, up-front, dryish Pinot Gris with stonefruit, pear and apricot flavours on a fine-texture palate and a light finish. A blend of 95% Pinot Gris and 5% Gewurztraminer, 70% from the Wairau Bar and 30% from the Redwood Hills, Awatere, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 5 g/L RS, the wine aged 4 months on lees." Raymond Chan

What a lot of awards for a modest looking little label, made by the good folks at Te Pa! Classic Pinot Gris aromatics of pear, quince, and red apples supported by floral notes and a dusting of spice. The stonefruit carries through to the palate which has creamy acidity, and a long lingering finish. Deliciously good value!
