An emerging classic. The attractively scented 2013 vintage was estate-grown, hand-picked at 24 brix and lees-aged in tanks. Sturdy, it has strong pear, lychee and spice flavours, a slightly oily texture, a splash of sweetness, gentle acidity and a long, distinctly spicy finish.

Jo Burzynska, Viva Top 50, New Zealand Herald
While perennially popular with many good easy drinking examples now available, it’s hard to find Pinot Gris that really hits the highest notes. However, this Nelson example nails it with its intense off-dry palate of quince, honey and spice, that’s lifted by a fresh, minerally undercurrent.  Viva Top 50, 27 May 2015
