Country: New Zealand, Auckland
Tasting Notes: The aromas have typical peach and stone fruit notes tinged with the floral perfume that we have come to expect from Pinot Gris. On the palate the wine is rich and complex with an lively texture on the palate. Pinot Gris is a variety that goes particularly well with food, including quite intensely flavoured dishes.
Varietal: 100% Pinot Gris
Pairing: One of the few wine styles that can handle the spiciness of chilli, so together with the sweet succulence of prawns, a nicely chilled bottle of Kumeu River Pinot Gris makes up a spectacular combination.
