90 POINTS
"Fresh, ripe and juicy brown and yellow apple aromas, honeysuckle and fruit spice. Equally fruity on the palate with a satin texture, contrasting acidity and a fresh mouth-watering juicy core. Just dry on the finish and in a style that will please many Gris fans. Best drinking from 2021 through end of summer 2022." MAY 21

2019 Vintage

90 POINTS "TOP VALUE"
“Gently aromatic pinot gris, with impressively pure, ripe Nashi pear, apple and bready yeast lees flavours. A dry and refreshing wine that's like biting into a chilled, tree-ripened pear.” JUL 20

3½ STARS
"Bargain-priced, the 2019 vintage was mostly grown in the Awatere Valley, but also in the Southern Valleys and at Kekerengu. Pale and fragrant, it is full-bodied, with good depth of pear and peach flavours, gentle spicy notes, and a dry, smooth finish."

"A fragrant, floral, youthful expression with aromas of white flowers and crisp green pear, there's a white peach and crunchy apple layer then white pepper. Just dry on the plate with a satin texture and flavours that reflect the bouquet. Acidity adds contrast and crunch. Well made with a balanced, even finish. Ready to drink from today and through 2023." SEP 20
