Wooing Tree (Otago) 2020 Pinot Gris
Rated Excellent - Otago Times, Mark Henderson
"Anise/fennel, spices, musk hinting at tropical fruits. Bold palate offering pear drops, spices and dry honey, moving to fruit cordial with time in the glass. Expressive, an off-dry style but nicely balanced with freshening acidity and a gentle tingly quality. Good intensity of flavour and lots of appeal in a glass here"
Winery description; "Ripe handpicked fruit and gentle winemaking have given a wonderfully balanced wine. The wine shows delightful aromas of ripe pear and tropical fruit, with white peach, melon and tangelo on the palate. This off dry wine is best served slightly chilled. Ripe fruit was handpicked from Cromwell Basin with 35% of the juice barrel fermented in older French oak barrels and the rest fermented in stainless steel tank."
