92 POINTS | NZ Wine Rater
This fragrant Gris is a firm staff favourite and we are picking that it will become yours too. The Main Divide range is full of excellent, great value wines and this juicy, Waipara Gris is exactly that.
NZ Wine Rater writes "A bright, punchy, aromatic nose with appealing orange blossom, ripe pear, mango, honeysuckle and lees influence. Lush, tasty, full-bodied and dry, boasting a rich, ripe, oily texture true to the variety with soft acid and where phenolics and alcohol add to the long finish."
The winery writes "Upon release its colour is pale gold. Floral and spiced pear aromas tease the nose, followed by nuances of juicy ripe nectarine, red apple, rock melon, and a hint of perfume. The palate is layered and rich, integrated with bright acidity and fine phenolics. A crisp and zippy mouthfeel is complimented by subtle sweetness, giving balance, and setting the platform for a long, textured finish."
