A relatively new producer in the Bendigo region of Central Otago, this wine won big at the annual Air New Zealand Wine Awards and it’s easy to see why. Lovely black cherry aromas and flavors are touched with hints of herbs and spice, while the mouthfeel is rich and velvety. Finishes long, with hints of vanilla and spice.
From the warmer Bendigo subregion of Central Otago, this is a rather broad, full-bodied rendition of Pinot Gris, with ample melon flavors forming the wine’s base. Embellishments of cinnamon and almond add complexity, lingering through the long finish. Drink now.
