FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Peregrine's Saddleback range has a well established track record for over delivery and this tangy, dry Pinot Gris is another out and out winner. Produced in the classic Central Otago style - elegant and dry - this well priced wine is drinking beautifully. Great value.
A dry Pinot Gris with floral, citrus and ginger aromatics and flavours of fresh pear, apricot and stonefruit.
Sam Kim writes "Wonderfully ripe and instantly appealing with apricot, poached pear, honeydew melon and rich floral aromas, it's succulent and plush on the palate delivering excellent fruit intensity backed by silken texture and refreshing acidity. Flavoursome and highly enjoyable."
The winery writes "A fresh, bright Pinot Gris, dry in style with lovely citrus, ginger and nougat aromatics. Stonefruit flavours combine with a lovely soft and slightly creamy palate."
The residual sugar is 4.5g/L.
