Crafted by the expert hands of the Donaldson family at the Iconic Pegasus Bay winery in Waipara. Adding a mix of barrel and wild yeast ferment and it drinks so much more completely than other Pinot Gris at it's price. This 2018 has rich ginger spice and a delicious honeyed botrytis thread permeating its luscious fruit... finishing off-dry. Although it will match with numerous white meat and seafood dishes it is equally appealing as a chilled white to enjoy at the end of a busy day.
Rich, mouth-filling Gris that is on the sweeter side but perfectly balanced.
If it’s Indian or Thai for dinner this is the near perfect wine. Deep lemon in colour, with an expansive bouquet filled with aromas of pear drops, feijoa, spice and floral notes. On the palate it is full-bodied and unctuous, with a tangy hint of ginger. The earlier picked fruit adds freshness and satisfying acidity, while the late picked portion and lees ageing have increased the mouth feel and complexity of this wine
