2016 Villa Maria Cellar Selection Pinot Gris

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

More Gris goodness from the cellars of Villa Maria, New Zealand’s most prolific and awarded winery. This shows the level of care that goes into the fruit selection for the cellar range with Gris grapes sourced exclusively from the Awatere Valley in Marlborough. Typically varietal with pear and spice leading to an expansive palate that’s lifted with apple, almond and cinnamon. It’s fleshy and fruity with excellent balance and persistence. It would go well with a fresh pasta with blue swimmer crab, chilli, and lots of olive oil and herbs.

2016 Villa Maria Cellar Selection Pinot Gris

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
The gold label is pretty much in step with the ripe, golden stone fruits inside this well-balanced, flavoursome pinot gris, showing a little layer of honeysuckle on the nose, some ripe pear and peach. The palate's supple and even: it's really bright, with smooth and balanced pear and sweet ripe melon through the finish.
