Perfumed potpourri of spices, with sultry raspberry, strawberry jam, lavender, baked rhubarb, pink peppercorns flooding the medium-bodied palate, one sharpened with a balsamic note and finishing with a flush of warmth. Tannins are gentle and soft on a downy cushion. Easy to like, and an accessible entry into Pinot without being dumbed down.
Straw-coloured with an oaky, spicy Burgundian-style nose; medium-bodied, dry, apple and citrus flavours; good length with a chalky-minerally note on the finish.
Straw-coloured, slightly sweaty on the nose with guava, green pineapple notes; medium-bodied, crisply dry green plum flavour with lively acidity and amazing length.
Clear medium-deep yellow. The nose loudly proclaims its New Zealand origin with powerful gooseberry, elderflower and lime scents. Surprisingly full-bodied, with more gooseberry flavour and lemony acidity. Perfect with a seafood ceviche. Drink up.
You never really know what you're going to get with New Zealand Pinot Gris. This one is ripe, full-bodied and honeyed pear, surprisingly showing some maturity beyond its 2015 vintage and the warmth of the fruit basket of Gisborne, on the North Island. Marmalade and ginger finish out the snappy finish.
A zesty mix of lime, passion fruit, nectarine, fruit salad, jalapeño, verbena and honey. Brisk acidity helps carry the flavours. Drink now.
Clear pale silvery yellow. Medium-intensity nose of gooseberry, mango and banana. Light-bodied and quite tart with a near-vinegary prickle to the acidity. Flavours of pineapple, lemon and melon. Drink up.
