Brick Bay Pinot Gris 2011 Matakana (North Auckland) 11.5%
N: Gentle and enticing bouquet of white fleshed summer fruits; Asian pear, sweet bosc pear; plenty of ripeness and hints of white pepper spice.
P: Juicy and fruity, lush and satisfying. This Gris will satisfy many palates and may even convert a few to Gris as well. Presented in an off-dry style with a core of fruit balanced and poised by a back bone of acidity. The finish is lengthy with hints of white pepper and pear skin flavors.
Drinking well now and for at least the next five years if stored properly.
