Gibbston Valley Pinot Gris 2009 Locharburn Pinot Gris 2009
These two are from Central Otago, proving that Pinot Noir is not the only grape that does well in the Deep South.
Gibbston Valley Pinot Gris 2009 $NZ27.50
Picked up a gold medal at the Royal Easter Show. Aromas of white blossom and carnation. Creamy texture, fruity Nashi pear flavours and a crisp dry finish.
Locharburn Pinot Gris 2009 $NZ25.95 Partly barrel fermented, so not as crisp and edgy as they tend to be from a sole stainless steel ferment. Lovely rounded and elegant flavours of pear and stewed apple.
