SILVER MEDAL - New Zealand Organic Wine Awards
Brilliant, light golden-hued straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is very refined and fresh, with attractively poised and balanced aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, lifted white florals unfolding subtle nutty, herb and mineral complexities. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegant in presentation with gently rich and vibrant fruit flavours of white and yellow stonefruits and florals. The mouthfeel possesses aromatic lift, vitality and energy, and the palate follows a fine-grained phenolic line, enlivened by brisk acidity. The fruit is finely concentrated and reveals nutty and mineral nuances as it flows to a refreshing, lingering finish. This is a refined and finely proportioned dryish Pinot Gris with delicately rich and vibrant fruit flavours and a refreshing mouthfeel. Serve with Thai, Japanese and Vietnamese fare. 4 Stars - Raymond Chan
