Soho Ziggy Pinot Gris
Wairau & Awatere Valleys, Marlborough
An elegant & fragrant wine that is textured & dry in style. Hints of poached pears, baked apple strudel & a touch of ginger spice. Flavoursome & satisfying with a pure & luscious finish.
Sam Kim - Wine Orbit
Attractively fruited and delightfully fragrant, the bouquet shows peach, fresh pear, mandarin and floral aromas, followed by a juicy palate that is bright and succulent. The wine is charming and immediately appealing with youthful fruit flavours, leading to a lingering smooth finish.
Bright, light straw colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is a little light and shy, but shows a positive core with softly entwined aromas of white and yellow stonefruits and subtle exotic floral notes, and some nutty and thirst-quenching chalky mineral nuances. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses flavours of white and yellow stonefruits and exotic florals unfolding a little pear and honeysuckle. The fruit forms an elegant core with linearity. The palate is smooth-flowing and carries along a very fine-textured line with balanced, fresh acidity, leading to a soft, lingering finish. This is a finely concentrated off-dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral and pear flavours on a soft, smooth-flowing palate.
