Locharburn Pinot Gris

Cracka Review

Along with attractive aromas of ripe golden peaches, nectarines and dried apricot, the bouquet exhibits typical Central Otago Pinot Gris citrus, apple and quince characters with mineral undertones. Some residual sugar enriches the palate, along with a thread of natural acidity. Partial skin contact and oak fermentation adds texture, making this a great match for food such as smoked salmon or eel.

Locharburn Awards & Accolades

" Pale straw-yellow in colour with a pale edge and slight green hue, this has a fresh, aromatic bouquet with concentrated spiced pear, honey and yellow florals showing. Dry to taste, some alcohol warmth shows alongside the restrained lime, gooseberry, pear and minerally stonefruit flavours. Savoury acidity is matched by some light textural grip, resulting in good weighty presence and a dry, soft finish. Serve with antipasto, poultry and pork, over the next 3-4+ years." 4 Stars - Raymond Chan, www.raymondchanwinereveiws.co.nz, Jul 2011

Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Medium to full-bodied, partly barrel-fermented style (20%) with decent depth of lemony, appley, slightly spicy flavour and good harmony. _Ideal food wine,î one judge noted.
