2014 Wither Hills Pinot Gris

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

There are few wineries in Marlborough that could claim to be as successful as Wither Hills and the brand is world famous for producing classic Kiwi wines that represent the region in such an evocative way. This is a classic Gris style based on the wines of Alsace with varietal character of quince, pear, peach and lime. A small portion of the fruit sees time in barrel to enhance the texture and the end result is a wine that’s fresh and captures the fruit perfectly. It’s unctuous and long with a lingering finish making it the best thing to open with good company and perhaps some washed rind cheese.

Winemaker's Notes

Aromas: This 2014 Wither Hills Pinot Gris has lovely fruit purity and poise with layered aromas and flavours of fleshy white peach, grapefruit, quince and Beurre Bosc pear.

Palate: The palate is off-dry in style and refreshingly vibrant, delivering a beautifully succulent mouth feel balanced by a thread of refined spicy pear skin phenolics for a long and textural finish. A tempting wine of remarkable intensity and style.

Food pairing: Perfect with a wide range of foods such as salty feta and/or washed rind cheeses, wood-smoked river salmon and roast pork with crackling.

Alc/vol: 13.5%

2014 Wither Hills Pinot Gris

Expert Reviews

Gary Walsh (2014 Vintage) says
Pear, honey, lime and lime rind, some funk and spice. Rich fruit flavour, pear and musk and spice with a honey and vanilla glaze, very fine powdery grip, even acidity, dry finish of good length. Big style, done well.
