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.

The 2016 vintage was Winestate's top NZ gris. We think this one is just as good....We were right, Bob Campbell has voted it as his No1 pinot gris (Dec 2018). Bob Campbell MW 95 points.

A well-made wine with a perfect balance. Very appealing." Winemakers comments: Our Pinot Gris is made from fruit grown on our Tiger and Sinclair vineyards in the Parkburn area of Cromwell. All the grapes are hand harvested and fermented in small lots in stainless steel tanks helping to...
Green citrus theme with back-up dancers in the shape of mango, guava and peach. A great demonstration of why Dry River is acknowledged as the finest producer of this varietal in the land of the long white cloud...RR4WEA

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
Light golden in the glass, the nose an array of cloves, pear, marzipan, honey dew and orange zest. A substantial and powerful palate, initially smooth rounded stone-fruit, progressing to a core of chalky phenolic, expanding into a very long pure finish. Wonderful now, especially with food, or age for four plus years. REVIEWS & ACCOLADES 19/20 Raymond Chan Bright straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is full, broad and voluminous with deep and rich aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits along with nuances of tropical fruits and exotic florals,nuances of honeysuckle, and steel, mouthwatering minerals. Subtle...
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...
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
