Buy of the Week NZ

Thornbury Pinot Gris 2017, Waipara, NZD $14.99

Medium-dry, flavoursome pinot gris with apple, pear and tree fruits plus a hint of mango and honey that suggests a subtle botrytis influence. A gently luscious wine that would make a great aperitif and a good accompaniment to moderately spicy dishes. (Screwcap)
