Koparepare (Marlborough) 2020 Pinot Gris
93 - Points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, NZ
"Pristine and elegant, the wine shows white flesh peach, Nashi pear, lemon peel and floral aromas, combined with fine texture and refreshing acidity, offering terrific drinking. A beautifully composed and styled pinot gris. At its best: now to 2023."
4 Stars - Michael Cooper, NZ
"Already drinking well, this ripely scented, full-bodied wine has vibrant pear, peach and spice flavours, gentle acidity and a dry, well-rounded finish."
90 Points - Cameron Douglas, NZ
"Pears and red apples, white spices and quince, fleshy stony mineral layers and tropical flower suggestions. On the palate - just dry with a touch of residual sweetness, the core of fruit drives the palate with flavours that reflect the nose. Medium acidity, satin texture, fruits spices moments of minerality and lees. Balanced and well made, ready to enjoy from today and through 2022."
