Huia Vineyards Pinot Gris 2013
On the nose ripe pear, ripe blossom and mandarin notes integrate with a delicate hint of spice. The palate is rich with a silky creamy texture. Ripe pear and white peach flavors combine with a delicate touch of nuts and spice. It has excellent length and structure.
The 2012 Pinot Gris is estate grown on Huia's Winsome and Home vineyards. These vineyards have a range of soil types from windblown glacial gley and sandy soils, to very stony alluvial silts in Rapaura. Huia Pinot Gris is delicious with seafood risotto, roasted and casseroled game, Thai food, grilled salmon and fresh water trout, seared game fish, rare beef salad, light blue cheese, or walnut tart.
