2014 Wild Rock Sur Lie Pinot Gris
Wild Rock are seen as the cool dudes of Hawkes Bay, but they dip their toe into Marlborough waters with this more off-dry style of Pinot Gris. Appealing scents of nashi pears, green apples and fresh ginger spice leap out of the glass, then the palate kicks in with a touch of sweetness upfront that leads to red apple flavours, a subtle creamy mouthfeel, and a decent, smooth finish with some appley acidity punching through to clean up the finish. Ideal with spicy dishes.
