MAN O' WAR SUPERDEAL
94/100 | Bob Campbell, MW
DELICIOUS. DELICIOUS. DELICIOUS.
It's not often that superdeals from this lauded producer cross our desk so we were thrilled to slip this excellent 2018 Pinot Gris under the magic $20 barrier. Fleshy and ripe with the perfect balance of fruit sweetness and fresh acidity, this is a deliciously affordable example of quality Waiheke Island Pinot Gris. It's perfect as any anytime aperitif or a premium one-stop-shop party wine. Fill your boots.
The 2018 Estate Pinot Gris is a delicious wine being relatively light in alcohol with aromas of tropical fruit, citrus and intense pear and spice characters on the palate. The palate is fresh and linear with the residual sugar balanced by the crisp acidity perfect for the summer drinking or as an aperitif.
