“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."
