FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Ant Moore's new a+ range focuses on creating premium, small batch wines that capture the bright, vibrant notes of the Marlborough fruit.
This release is luscious and ripe, with pear and fig flavours on the palate and that classic pinot gris spice. There are plenty of fruit notes on the mid-palate but the finish is crisp and dry. Another stunning wine from this legendary Marlborough producer.
The winery writes "This luscious Pinot Gris has jasmine and nashi pear aromas, fig, pear, and spice on the palate, and a sensuous texture with great length and a dry finish. Divinely matched with a pear, fig and goat cheese salad or an Asian curry."
Sam Kim writes "It's gorgeously ripe and enticing on the nose showing golden peach, poached pear, rockmelon and rich floral aromas, leading to a succulent palate delivering excellent weight and plush mouthfeel. Flavoursome and instantly appealing."
