FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Beautifully fruited and inviting."
An absolute bargain from this trusted set of hands.
What a deal. Awatere River has always focused on quality over quantity and you can be sure that this plush, medium-dry pinot gris screams quality all the way. It's a lovely inviting style with layers of weighty pear and quince flavours underpinned with a lick of fresh acidity; a classic expression of modern Marlborough Pinot Gris with the texture and persistence that sets it apart from the pack.
Sam Kim writes "Beautifully fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows golden peach, fresh pear, apple and floral aromas, leading to a wonderfully rounded palate that’s succulent and fleshy. It’s well proportioned and fruit expressive with a lengthy smooth finish."
This is a dry medium bodied Pinot Gris with exotic floral and stonefruit flavours with savoury honeysuckle elements on a fine, dry-textured palate with plenty of presence. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3+ years.
