Rich and nutty style with ripe Pinot Gris flavours reminiscent of baked pear and pastry, and lively spritz in conclusion. Pure drinking please - and a very exciting example of Pinot Gris.
The Brajkovich family is one of the founders of modern New Zealand wine, and they continue to impress with, in this case, an opulent Alsace-inspired pinot gris that mixes roses, baking spice and ripe quince with a spicy stir-fry-happy oiliness of texture.
