Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: This Pinot Gris from the warm Hawkes Bay region is another notable bargain. The nose features lovely peach, pear and apple aromas. It’s just off-dry with a round texture and juicy fruit flavors beautifully balanced by a bright seam of acidity. My note: Ripe tree fruit on the nose with floral and quince notes to follow. A well-delineated wine that offers both refreshment and hedonistic pleasure.

Pinot Gris food pairings: Asian noodle dishes, liver pate, fried camembert with blueberry sauce, Mediteranean tilapia, mushroom ravioli.

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pear and jonagold apple, stonefruit, and a hint of tropical fruit keep this wine exciting. Not a heck of a lot of acid here, better to drink on its own or even with soft cheese as a complement, rather than a contrast. 88 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
