Ripe pear, spiced apple and quince paste, with a suggestion of mead and figs.
This is a full-flavoured wine, with a rich mouth-filling texture, lingering acidity and an off-dry finish. Pear flavours and some ripe stone fruit dominate the fresh and weighty palate.

Reviews

3 out of 3 customers rated Whitehaven (Marlborough) 2017 Pinot Gris as good value for money.


By:
A bit lighter in character than some of the other Pinot Gris I've had from Winesale recently.  Still, good balance and an enjoyable wine overall.  Good acidity - works with or without food.  Given the minimal price difference between this wine and the Squawking Magpie (also through Winesale) I'd go with the latter as I've really been enjoying some of these rich, almost decadently styled Pinot Gris wines.  However, if you're looking for an enjoyable lighter version, this one will suit just fine.
