From one of the principle regions for the production of Pinot Grigio, Trentino, this is our brand new import!
Slightly oak aged in old wood with beautiful freshness, crisp acidity and a touch of oiliness, fresh with hints of Turkish delight, ripe pear and green fig. This is magnificent to go with fish, shell fish or on its own simply because it is wonderfully balanced, textural Pinot Grigio.
Nevis Bluff which was established in the mid 1990’s has been a great pioneer in Central Otago producing both Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. However their real star is the Pinot Gris, it’s dry and full bodied with lovely mineral overtones, crisp bright acidity with hints of Turkish delight, ripe pear and still remaining fresh and crisp. Frankly one of the best Pinot Gris in the country!
The Red Edition, same varieties as The Pink Edition but of course with more Pinot Noir in it but the Pinot Gris and the Pinot Blanc offers beautiful perfume, lovely aromas and gives it an extra lift of freshness and vitality. A lovely Pinot Noir which is light, soft and almost in the style of a Beaujolais for comparisons sake which you can put in the fridge for 20 mins or so and is absolutely stunning! Crisp and refreshing with lovely cherry flavours, excellent on its own or with food. Delicious!
Stunning soft and aromatic Pinot Gris, beautifully perfumed with essence of ripe pear, Turkish delight and a touch of honey suckle. Even though it is very well priced, you could serve it alongside a $25 Pinot Gris and it will compare very favourably.
North Eastern Italy has historically produced outstanding Pinot Grigio in fact among the very best in the world and always incredibly well priced. This is superb, it’s exactly what you would expect from a top notch Pinot Grigio, full bodied, crisp, fresh, flinty, aged on its lees for a few months so with great substance and concentration, just stunning!
This is really what you would expect from a Northern Italian Pinot Grigio, crisp, light and beautifully perfumed with lovely texture and acidity. It’s exactly what you want from classical Italian Pinot Grigio, ripe pear and Turkish delight with freshness, vitality and exuberance yet soft, rounded and beautifully smooth. At this price it’s simply stunning!
Exotic aromas of guava and pink grapefruit, blend with pineapple and apple strudel. The palate is smooth and velvety with flavours of nutmeg, lemon custard and hints of beeswax. The finish has a citrus pith, textural feel that keeps it fresh, with pastry savoury notes.
From vines now over 23 years of age, the depth and complexity of flavour make it one of our favourite food and wine matching choices, especially for anything with heady spice and/or challenging flavours. Fermented in neutral barrels for extra texture, this Pinot Gris will benefit from bottle age.
"Beautiful complex aromas greet the nose with brioche, crème brulée, rock melon and honeycomb, followed by stone fruit, ripe pears, mango and quince. The palate is classic Dry River Pinot Gris, transparent, dense with a broad ‘gourmand’ mouthfeel and a light acidity to balance out some sweetness. The wine spreads fast through the mouth, coating the palate with high impact and finely textured tannins.
The wine can be enjoyed now, but will improve over the next five years."
It’s beautifully ripe on the nose displaying white peach, pear, citrus and floral characters. The palate is concentrated and richly textured with succulence and well-balanced acidity, finishing impressively long and smooth. A lovely dry-style with a beautifully flowing mouthfeel.
It’s not often that we come across an excellent Pinot Gris which offers an array of concentrated fruits of pear, fig and turkish delight yet maintaining wonderful structure, clarity and focus. This is a Pinot Gris that is suitable for drinking right now being very refreshing and aromatic yet will also cellar for another couple of years.
