Sam Kim, Wine Orbit - 94 Points, 5 Stars
"Beautifully styled and fragrant, the wine shows Nashi pear, apricot, thyme and white floral notes on the nose, leading to a delightfully weighted palate offering lovely fruit purity and intensity. Gorgeously composed and delectably appealing" 

Cameron Douglas, MS - 92/100 Points, Premium
"Aromas and flavours of fresh brown pears, baked apple and citrus. There’s a crisp stony mineral quality and white spice quality highlighting the mineral and pristine acid line. Still very new and youthful with a taut mouthfeel, easily tamed with fresh seafood. Best drinking from late 2022 through 2025." 

Michael Cooper, NZ - 4.5 Stars
"Offering good value, the powerful, youthful 2021 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard wine, estate-grown in the Wairau Valley. Bright, light lemon/green, it is fragrant and full-bodied, with strong, vibrant pear, lychee and spice flavours, lees-aging notes adding complexity, fresh acidity and a smooth, dry (2.9 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Best drinking mid-2023+." 

Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews - 92/100 Points
"Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The wine is soft, penetrating oyster shell minerals and spice on the entrance, unfolding subtle floral, citrus and tree fruit. Medium-full bodied, dry to taste, a good weight cushioning the palate with aromas of pear, apple, apricot, white floral, interweave honey, talcum spice and grapefruit peels on the finish. The wine has a good concentration of flavour and body, supported by balanced acidity, and spice left a numbing sensation on an oily lingering. This is an elegant dry Pinot Gris with concentrated fruit and spice, balanced acidity and a smooth mouthfeel. Match with gyoza and chicken ballotine over the next 3 years." 

Delicate white peach, quince and ripe pear, with a hint of baking spice notes. This Pinot Gris displays flavours of stonefruit and pear, with an underlying mineral quality. Time on lees has contributed to the wine’s rich texture, which is finely balanced out with a gentle thread of acidity that helps to create a long, dry finish.  Although delicious to drink now, this wine should age gracefully for another 3-4 years if cellared carefully.
This Pinot Gris is made to be enjoyed with food. We recommend dishes featuring richer seafoods, mushrooms, light game and poultry.
