Hawkshead Pinot Gris 2017

$30.00 $27.00

The 2017 Pinot Gris is pleasingly refreshing, full of tropical fruit notes. A truly classic Central Otago wine. The wine displays lifted notes of Kaffir lime, citrus peel and sweet spice aromatics with notable hints of passionfruit and honeydew. Surprising it finishes with a memory of ripe Doyenne du Comice Pear.

The dry style Pinot Gris still displays an impressive fruit sweetness; it will fool your palate. It has only 2 grams of residual sugar per litre. Fresh pineapple acidity and unctuous texture make it a balanced wine with a steely mineral backbone. The Pinot Gris shows drive and persistence; you’re ensured to enjoy the long lingering, refreshing finish.
