|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Aromatic and flavourful Pinot Gris with melon, green apple, lime, ginger and nutmeg. Crisp acidity and fine balance. Perfect for summer sipping.
Tasted August 2017 at Zolta premiere at ZIBI.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful aroma, fruity and zesty and spicy. Grapefruit, pear, ginger, white tea. Medium body and lingering. A spicy (aromatic) and creamy Indian dish like butter chicken (or butter paneer) would compliment the spice in the wine while the freshness would counteract the richness.
|Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beautifully aromatic Pinot Gris crafted with fruit grown in Wairau and Awatere vineyards in Marlborough. Delicately perfumed nose with pronounced aromas and flavours of Granny Smith apples, ripe pears and honeydew melons. Fruit-forward, vibrant and fresh with crisp acidity. Extremely versatile and food-friendly. Perfectly matched with grilled shellfish, mild cheeses and antipasti.Tasted August 2017. Tania Thomas – www.runawaygrape.com

Kim Crawford's Gris has some nice New World fruit and reminds me a lot of Alto Adige Pinot, more than Alsace. It is still light and bright.
Lots of white fruit, like white peach, Ranier cherry, and nectarine. It is pretty pleasant, if not a tpuch 1 dimensional.
Pair it with catfish done in garlic butter. Serve with something leafy and green.

Beautiful bouquet of grass, straw and some tropical notes. Tastes of white grapefruit . I found a bit bitter on the finish. Would pair lovely with fish and summer salads.

Another reliable and consistent selection from Kim Crawford. This is a great summer wine, a bit more subtle than a typical Marlborough New Zealand wine you may have tried before. Lots of pear and lemon on the nose, this wine is a little more viscous and textured, providing a nice weight and mouthfeel. Seems more tropical and warm on the palate, with rounded flavours and less acidity than their Sauvignon Blanc counterparts. Overall, very pleasant and versatile. This wine would be great with lots of summery salads or seafood dishes, but with its added body, would also be a fine pairing with grilled fish or vegetables.

Aromas and flavors of pear, apple with crisp citrus notes and some baking spice on the palate.
