Though best known for their extraordinary prowess with Chardonnay, Kumeu River's reputation for crafting fine Pinot Gris is gilt edged and they consistently produce some of the finest Pinot Gris examples released on the domestic market. The 2020 is an especially luscious and complex style - richly proportioned with layers of spiced fruit.
Wonderful wine at a compelling price. Climb in.
The winery writes "The aromas have typical peach and stone fruit notes tinged with the floral perfume that we have come to expect from Pinot Gris. On the palate the wine is rich and complex with a lively texture on the palate. Pinot Gris is a variety that goes particularly well with food, including quite intensely flavoured dishes. It is also one of the few wine styles that can handle the spiciness of chilli, so together with the sweet succulence of prawns, a nicely chilled bottle of Kumeu River Pinot Gris makes up a spectacular combination."
