Lake Forsyth Banks Peninsula NZ Pinot Gris 2009

An unusual and appealing Pinot Gris with high-toned pear drop and floral flavours. A pure and ethereal texture leads to a delicately drying finish. Slightly prominent alcohol adds warmth but also a little hardness.
Tasted: Aug 2011 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $32 (~USD $27)
