Natalie's Score: 91/100

A fresh, crisp New Zealand white wine made from the Pinot Gris grape. We generally associate kiwi whites with Sauvignon Blanc, but Pinot Gris is equally refreshing and also does well in a cool climate. This 2016 Kim Crawford Pinot Gris offers aromas of lime, Asian pear and lemongrass. Pair with seafood, shellfish and wonderful performances of the Cirque du Soleil.

Pinot Gris food pairings: grilled lobster tail in butter, stir-fried shrimp, grilled salmon.

Aromatic and flavourful Pinot Gris with melon, green apple, lime, ginger and nutmeg. Crisp acidity and fine balance. Perfect for summer sipping.

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

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
