You'll find apple and pear flavours with notes of spice and a richness that just screams pour me into a glass and curl up by the fire with a plate of comfort food...we sugges our sumptuous Braised Pork with Herbs, Bacon and Baby Potatoes. It's a match made in heaven!
From some of the oldest Pinot Gris vineyard in the Marlborough region, the age of the vines give the wine texture and palate weight.
Sam Kim awarded this wine 93 points and 5 stars, describing it as "immediately appealing on the nose showing white flesh nectarine, white floral, lemon peel and fresh pear aromas, leading to a beautifully rounded palate that's juicy and flavoursome. The wine offers elegance as well as immense drinkability."
