Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely and fresh. Aromas of pear and lemon on the nose with some tropical fruit and a hint of spicy white pepper. Slightly viscous and textured on the palate with a nice weight and mouthfeel. Lots of tropical flavours on the palate, and a lengthy finish. Enjoy with fresh seafood, grilled fish or vegetables.
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A crisp and lively Pinot Gris from Marlborough, New Zealand.
A lovely bouquet of pear, green apple, clementine and white florals.
Light to medium bodied, with mouthwatering acidity, and a tangy lemon-lime finish.
Would pair wonderfully with seared tuna or a vegetable stir fry.
Tasted May 2021.
Philippe Perreault - Sommelier rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

Clear yellow/green color with aromas of white flower, lemon, grapefruit and flint,
This is a medium-bodied wine with a lively acidity.

Pair it with shellfish.
Ready to drink but can be aged 2-3 years.
Serve it between 6-8 degrees.
Kim Crawford 2019 Pinot Gris is so well-crafted, right up its juicy ripe yellow apple, fresh pear and spice aromas to its zesty, creamy honeyed orchard and stone fruit flavours with a smattering of fine herbs and grassy notes on the palate. Juicy and easy to understand even with all of its layers. Chill and enjoy with seafood dishes. - Community Wine Reviews
