Starborough Awarere Valley Pinot Gris Reserve

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

As pinot gris goes, this offering from Starborough is a musclebound beasty! Hailing from a single vineyard, it's rich, it's ripe, and it packs a pear-laden punch to the senses. Other smells and flavours come along for the ride like stone fruits, lemons and ginger spice, all supported by a bit of sweetness, soft acidity, and a smooth, plush, fruity finish. Try it with a robust chilli dish!

Winemaker's Notes

Very pale straw-yellow colour with green hues, pale on rim. This has a full, voluminous, but firm and powerfully intense nose of ripe pears, subtly spiced and with yellow stonefuit nuances. Dry to taste, this has stylish, near-ethereal flavours of white stonefruits and ripe pears, harmoniously melded with soft, unctuous textures on the palate. Soft acidity and balanced alcohol are integrated and the wine is very accessible. This has fruit weight and depth that builds, and contributes to great mouthfeel and presence. The wine has a long and sustained finish with soft, rich and honied pear flavours.
