Food Pairings for Mt. Difficulty Pinot Gris Central Otago
This mildly intense wine is well-balanced and would pair well with asian cooking featuring meat and veggies in a savory citrus sauce. Nose was tart, yeasty, notes of citrus and peach. On the attack had lively acid, noticeable mandarin orange and almond flavor continuing into the mid-palate. Light bodied and almost clear in color. Finish continued with the orange theme. Men impress the ladies with this wine at the local gourmet Chinese restaurant.
18.5/20 points Geoff Kelly: (no oak) Pale lemonstraw. Bouquet is clear-cut pinot family, attractive rose petal and white pear flesh, some white nectarine... Palate continues these winning qualities, pure pinot gris fruit, surprisingly dry yet the phenolics so well handled they merely give the wine structure. This is a lovely example of the variety. It will be a good food wine, as well as cellaring well 2 - 6 years. (Nov 2008)
