93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
SILVER MEDAL | Royal Easter Show.
Matawhero are making some really interesting wines these days but this delicious Pinot Gris stopped us in our tracks at a recent tasting. This is a lush and textural Pinot Gris brimming with classic ripe pear characters on a rounded palate supported by a rich citrus fruits on the finish. Harmony and balance are the calling cards here. Excellent, repeat, EXCELLENT wine.
Vegetarian and Vegan friendly.
Sam Kim writes "It is fabulously fruited and inviting on the nose showing poached pear, mandarin, mango and floral characters with a hint of spicy complexity. The palate is concentrated and rounded, and displays excellent fruit intensity and rich texture, wonderfully supported by juicy acidity. The wine is expressive and comforting with loads of tasty flavours."
