New Zealand — Marlborough • $19.95 • 88/100

Pinot Gris is actually the third white grape of New Zealand, after Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, and is generally viewed as “Gris” rather than “Grigio” in style. The wine is very pale straw in colour, with bright reflections. Bright red apple, white peach and lemon aromas are complemented by a note of white flowers and a suggestion of spice underneath. The wine is dry, softened by a hint of residual sugar, with balanced acidity and alcohol, a little warmth on the mid-palate, and a firm, weighty richness. Very pleasant indeed. • Tasted 2017-05-13 • LCBO id#490300 • Find it at your nearest LCBOAUTHENTIC WINE & SPIRITS MERCHANTS (Agent)
