Kumeu River Pinot Gris 2011
|Region||New Zealand, Auckland|
The aromas have typical peach and stone fruit notes tinged with the floral perfume expected from Pinot Gris. On the palate, the wine is rich and complex with an oily texture that coats the tongue and lingers on the palate with a lovely length of flavor. Pinot Gris is a variety that goes well with food, including intensely flavored dishes. It is also one of the few wine styles that can handle the spiciness of chili, so together with the sweet succulence of prawns, a nicely chilled bottle of Kumeu River Pinot Gris makes a spectacular combination.
The yellow apple, pear and fresh peach flavors are balanced and slightly spicy, with a soft juiciness. Drink now. 5,500 cases made.
