Bob Campbell 93 points. Pure, pristine pinot gris with ripe tree fruit, apple and pear flavours, together with a seasoning of ginger from yeast lees contact. Silken-textured wine with just a hint of sweetness balanced by gentle acidity. An attractive wine made with a light touch 14 FEB 2018 BC 93 WINERY TASTING NOTES: A textural and saturating persistent Pinot Gris that has classic varietal characters of white flesh pear with nuances of shortbread and spice from the barrel ferments. The Central Otago natural acidity balancing the slight residual sweetness.
Comments by winemaker, Wilco Lam: The 2016 Dry River Pinot Gris is initially a bit shy, which is to be expected of a young wine, but progressively the complexities start to become evident. Kiwi fruit, rock melon and white flesh stone-fruit are the obvious fruit aromas. We gladly welcome the stewed rhubarb character I often saw in our past Pinot gris. Bay leaf, ground galangal, and other Indian spices like cardamom and caraway seed add further interest. Candle nuts and vanilla pod bring a grounding effect and entice to finally start tasting! The wine appears drier than previous releases, the residual sugar is approximately 20 g/l, which might...
Raymond Chan 18.5+/20, Sam Kim Wine Orbit 93 points. Winery Notes: It is an aromatic white blend showing stone fruit characters and honeysuckle on the nose with baked golden apple on the palate. The 2016 Le Phant Blanc is a blend of 65 % Viognier, 27% Pinot Gris and 8% Gewurztraminer. All the fruit are from our Te Awanga Vineyard. A small portion is barrel fermented to add density to the middle palate.
The 2016 Pinot Gris is produced from our Te Awanga Estate vineyard. The wine displays the hallmark characteristics of this exciting variety. Aromas of white peach and pear are displayed on the nose. It is a soft and elegant Pinot Gris with a well-balanced rich palate. AWARDS 2016 Pinot Gris - Raymond Chan 18/20. - China Wine & Spirits Awards, 2017 Gold Medal - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, NZ 90 points
93/100 Bob Campbell MW "Creamy-textured pinot blanc with vanilla, pepper and gently spicy flavours. An appealing wine in a restrained and rather elegant style. Dry, but not austere, with support from gentle acidity and very fine tannins. Good food wine - great with scallops 23/4/2018" Drink 2018 - 2022 18.5/20 Raymond Chan "The nose is fresh with elegantly proportioned aromas of savoury white stonefruits, delicate nuances of herbs, subtle thirst-quenching minerals and suggestions of oxidative complexities. The aromatics are pure and focussed. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has lively and succulent flavours of white...
93/100 Bob Campbell MW "Barrel-fermented pinot gris with ripe pear and peach fruit flavours enhanced with nutty yeast lees, toast and a suggestion of spicy oak. Dry, flavoursome wine with a backbone of fine tannins. A classy wine with development potential 3/4/2018 " Drink 2018 - 2021
This dry-style Pinot Gris comes from a single block of vines on the Greystone Vineyard. The grapes grow on calcareous clay soils which leads to a Pinot Gris with inherent minerality and richness. A portion of the wine was aged on yeast lees for four months before estate bottling without ﬁning.

Light golden in colour with a nose of fresh stone fruits, wild fennel and hints of cream. The palate flows with fine-grained phenolics, integrated fruit-laden acidity and an abundance of Nashi pear and white peach flavours. REVIEWS & ACCOLADES 5 stars - Raymond Chan Bright, even straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues. The nose is softly rich and concentrated with well-packed aromas of white and yellow stonefruits along with honied notes and yellow florals, and a suggestion of spice. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has soft, rich flavours of white and yellow stonefruits and subtle notes of honey and exotic florals. The...
Notes from Duncan: This Gruner Veltliner is medium weight in a dry style. Floral, white pepper, and pip-fruit aromas on the nose , similar fruit flavours including spice and pears come through on the palate, all underpinned by mineral characters and refreshing acidity. We aim to produce wines of purity, precision and balance with a clear resonance of flavour. The wine is drinking extremely well now but can be cellared with confidence for two to four years. A fruit driven style of Gruner Veltliner with a luscious texture. This Gruner Veltliner is organically produced, Bio Gro Certified, and is made from a Single Estate Vineyard, Morrison...
2016 Pinot Gris Rockburn Pinot Gris features ripe peach, nectarine and Nashi pear aromas, heralding a vibrantly fruity off-dry palate. This combined with a very long, zesty finish complements rich or light seafood meals or most Asian-spiced cuisine, though its extraordinary versatility should be experienced over a wide range of dishes. This wine is drinking very well now and is expected to mellow over the next 3-4 years. Drink by 2024.
A gorgeous pinot gris… the fragrant and complex bouquet shows baked pear, mango, orange peel and spice characters, leading to a succulent palate that is concentrated and richly textured. This hugely appealing wine is elegantly opulent and very delicious. 5 Stars - Wine Orbit NZ 5 Stars - Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
