Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I liked the wine but I feel I need to say that some consumers might be in for a dissapointment. Firstly, if a wine is going to call itself "Pinot Gris" then I expect they are trying to do it in a French/Alsatian style ie. big, full, round. This wine is very crisp and is much more Pinot Grigio in style. Secondly, the worlds wine regulations typically allow up to 15% of another grape variety to be blended in without declaring it on the label. This one I suspect has blended in some Sauv. Blanc. I could be wrong but I saw grassy herbaceous notes and higher acidity levels. Buy it, enjoy it but dont expect Gris.
3 Stones (2017) is a zesty Pinot Gris from Marlborough, South Island with a citrusy nose and white grapefruit, ripe apple, pear, floral and grassy notes on the palate. Good acidity for fresh seafood and shellfish. Enjoy now. The three stacked stones on the label represent the elements of soil, climate and craft. - Community Wine Reviews
