Distant Land Marlborough Pinot Gris

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
The 2010 is a single-vineyard wine, grown in the lower Wairau Valley and handled without oak. Full-bodied and fresh, it has good concentration of ripe peach, spice and nectarine flavours, showing excellent delicacy and vibrancy, and a finely balanced, off- dry (8 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. The 2011 vintage is delicious from the start, with strong, vibrant peat, spice and slight apricot flavours, showing excellent delicacy, harmony and length.

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
The 2008 vintage from Lincoln was grown in the Wairau Valley and 10 per cent of the blend was fermented in old French barrels. It's a mouthfilling, ripely scented wine with soft, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, showing very good depth. The 2009, not oak-aged, is delicious from the start, with an attractively scented bouquet and fresh, rich nectarine and pear flavours, showing good harmony.
