This pinot gris comes from one of Marlbourough’s best producers who make beautiful wines year after year. It comes from two vineyards, whose fruit combines to make a stunning wine. Made in a richer-style, including a little bit of skin contact for texture (not colour), it is a complex and intriguing wine. There is citrus freshness, ginger spice and stonefruit richness. Expect a bit more residual sugar than a grigio, which presents as palate weight and a food-friendliness, making this a very versatile wine.

Anyone who's ever tried Martinborough pinot noir will shout its praises from the rooftop... at least, anyone who's not a Marlborough diehard. There seems to be a nice rivalry in the pinot stakes between the two regions, with Martinborough producing more structural (some would say "Burgundian") styles, as opposed to Marlborough's fruity flavour fests. If you see one, nab it. Also keep an eye out for the aromatic whites.
