Buy of the Week NZ

Quartz Reef Pinot Gris 2015, Central Otago, NZD $28

Tasted alongside the 2016 vintage, this is a more open and expressive wine with bready lees characters dominating more subtle ginger and citrus flavours. The wine has a great texture and a very lengthy finish. Deliciously drinkable but with the potential to develop further. (Screwcap)
