Hans Herzog Marlborough Pinot Gris (2018)

Prepare for something different! Estate-grown on the northern side of the Wairau Valley, the 2018 vintage (5*) is a thought-provoking wine, like its predecessors. Orange-hued, from long skin contact with the juice, it was partly oak-aged (20 per cent of the blend was matured for nine months in partly new French oak puncheons). Mouthfilling, it has strong peach, apricot and spice flavours, a hint of strawberry, impressive complexity and a dry, lasting finish. Now in full stride, it's certified organic.
