Charming Kiwi

Catalina Sounds Pinot Gris 2017, Marlborough, AUD $25

This is a pristinely clean, fresh, vibrant pinot gris of straightforward style that shows great intensity and charm in its grapy, stone fruit, nectarine-like aromas and flavours. There’s a touch of sweetness and the wine is ready to drink and very pleasurable. (Screwcap)
