Unison (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Bumble bee Pinot Gris
90 Points Cameron Douglas
"Immediately fruity and varietal with vibrant and razor-sharp aromas of green pear, Nashi-Asian pear, white spice and apple. On the palate - salivating, fleshy, fruity and vibrant flavours mirroring the nose. Medium+ acidity, gently warming alcohol and a persistent flavourful finish. This is a lovely vegan friendly wine in a just dry style. Well made and ready to enjoy from purchase and through 2021.
Unison is on the Gimblett Gravels, a former river bed with special soil that mirrors other premium wine regions across the world. The name Unison was inspired by the lessons of traditional wine making working in harmony with best of the new world techniques.
Grapes hand-picked. They were so ripe that the bees were swarming all over the bunches and picking bins. Hence the name!
Ripe pear and gentle baking spice aromas mingle with rose petals. Lush and velvety in the mouth with flavours of pears, apricots and cinnamon. Elegant, vibrant, delicious.......!
