LUSH WAIPARA PINOT GRIS SUB $15 SUPERBUY
Textural, flavoursome and oh so moreish!
With lush flavours of ginger spice and pear drop, this textural and flavoursome Waipara Pinot Gris is a must-buy for any fan of aromatic New Zealand whites. This sub $15 stunner is smooth and juicy with just a kiss of sweetness, but enough freshness and vibrancy to keep things lively. It's fun, fruity and oh so moreish.
Whilst this is a great drop to enjoy on its own, its fruity and exotic flavours make it a great match for Asian cuisine or anything with a hint of chilli. Try it paired with a zingy prawn thai green curry for a warming winter treat.
Don't say we didn't warn you if one case isn't enough. It's time to go long on this little beauty.
Sherwood Estate started as a husband and wife operation in Waipara in the late 1980s and it's evolved into one of the biggest independent wine operations in the country. They focus on making quality wines with an emphasis on environmental stewardship, having become one of the first Waipara wineries to become accredited with Sustainable Winemaking New Zealand. Their Stratum range is all about fresh, bright, exuberant wines and their 2022 pinot gris release is exactly that. They have used a number of winemaking techniques to build complexity and texture into the wine and the result is a vibrant, wine with pear and ginger spice characters shining through on the palate. An excellent release.
The winery writes "A Pinot Gris filled with great fruit intensity of ginger spice and pear drop aromas, beautifully balanced with a smooth juicy finish. A wine to be enjoyed on any occasion."
