Wine of the Week NZ
Ostler Lakeside Vines Pinot Gris 2016, Waitaki Valley, NZD $29.90
Pungent, aromatic pinot gris with appealing purity, flavour depth and a creamy texture. A suggestion of sweetness is perfectly balanced by fresh acidity that adds a little tension to the wine. Pear, floral, mineral and delicately nutty flavours. Should develop well with bottle age. (Screwcap)
