Kumeu River Pinot Gris 2020
Kumeu, New Zealand
The aromas have typical peach and stone fruit notes tinged with the floral perfume that we have come to expect from Pinot Gris. On the palate the wine is rich and complex with a lively texture on the palate. Pinot Gris is a variety that goes particularly well with food, including quite intensely flavoured dishes. It is also one of the few wine styles that can handle the spiciness of chilli, so together with the sweet succulence of prawns, a nicely chilled bottle of Kumeu River Pinot Gris makes up a spectacular combination.
“This has an elegantly proportioned nose with softly presented but fresh fruit aromas of white and yellow stone fruits along with piquant yellow florals entwined with nutty and honied elements, and hints of minerals. The aromatics build in intensity with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is harmoniously presented with gently layered ripe, white and yellow stone fruits entwined with yellow florals and honied nuances.” – Raymond Chan, raymondchanwinereviews.co.nz.
