Kim Crawford Pinot Gris Marlborough 2008
This varietal is an attractive, delicately perfumed alternative to Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. This Pinot Gris is all about texture and flavour. Light aroma of pear, peach and nectarine; medium in body with an exceptional balance between fruit sweetness and acidity. This wine will leave a lasting impression. It’s a great mate with many friends and matches particularly well with Asian food.
One of the reasons why New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs have taken the world by storm. Delightful to the point of exuberance, this is a great wine for drinking alone of with lighter fare.
Two and a half glasses
Chilled to perfection is how I like to drink this Pinot Gris. Fruity and smooth. I really like this wine.
Nice soft wine. Well balanced, with a long finish. Light and buttery. Great for pre-dinner drinks
