FIVE STARS 95/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
93/100 'Excellent' | Cameron Douglas MS
We love Waipara Pinot Gris and we really love the wines that come out of Mount Brown. So, when we found out that they had a reserve-level gris that we could retail under $20, there was no holding us back. Vinted in an off-dry style, this is luscious, concentrated gris with flavours of pear and peach on the palate. A lovely note of ginger spice on the finish makes this the perfect partner for spicy Thai dishes.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "A bouquet of concentration, variety and spice with aromas of white nectarine and pear, red apple flesh and sweet meyer lemon. A silky smooth texture touches the palate with equal impact from flavours that reflect the nose. A white pepper spice and white nectarine flavours is accentuated through the acid line then flavours of other white fleshed fruits and citrus fold into the spectrum laid out on the palate."
The winery writes "This wine has great concentration with a fresh mineral quality giving the wine lift and elegance. The aroma is delicate with ripe pear and apple and a subtle floral spice. The palate has beautiful balance with fine acidity and texture."
