Natalie's Score: 90/100

Cool climate viticulture from the North Island shows through in this zesty Pinot Grigio. Bone-dry with lime lift through the mid-palate. Good mouth-watering acidity for seafood or an aperitif. Zippy and refreshing with aromas of lime and grapefruit. Ends on an up note of lime and lemon zest and springtime energy.

Pinot Grigio food pairings: grilled lake fish, garden salad, shellfish, chicken cacciatore, spaghetti.

Reliable quality from this Hawkes Bay, N.Z. Pinot Grigio. Crisp and extra-dry with fresh white tree fruit and just right citrus aromas and flavours. Very versatile with seafood, Asian cuisine or for just sipping

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
