FIVE STARS 95/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
94 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
What a winner. Sensational gris from this Central Otago producer. Winemaker Olly Masters has worked some serious magic here and the result is a plush, off-dry gris with flavours in the pear and red apple spectrum. A portion was fermented in ages French oak barrels which has added texture and complexity to the mid palate. A fine example of Central Otago Pinot Gris and one that the team at Misha's Vineyard can be very proud of.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "This is fabulously poised and elegantly expressed, showing white flesh stone fruit, Nashi pear, jasmine and lemon pith nuances, leading to a beautifully flowing palate that's juicy and fleshy. Richly textured and persistent with delectable flavours within a delightfully elegant frame."
Cameron Douglas writes "Youthful, vibrant and new with aromas of white spice and white fleshed fruits, there’s a quiet yet distinctive quince note with a mineral and floral lift. Really lovely textures on the palate with a fleshy, lush mouthfeel accentuated with acidity and a topline of spice. Fruit flavours mirror the bouquet with pears and apple, quince and honeysuckle and a light lemon twist. A wine with weight breadth and substance. A delicious drink from day of purechase and through 2027+."
