Robinson Pinot GrisWell believe it or not, New Zealand’s Marlborough region, does other things then Sauvignon Blanc.  The Robinsons Wairau River Vineyard 2014 Pinot Gris was a delightful little find.  Now for the uneducated the :-

Pinot gris or Grauburgunder is a white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. Thought to be a mutant clone of the Pinot noir variety, it normally has a grayish-blue fruit, accounting for its name (gris meaning “gray” in French) but the grapes can have a brownish pink to black and even white appearance. (Wikipedia).

As I get older and my tasebuds muture, I find that I like different things, well the Pinot Gris is a nice chance from years of Sauvignon Blanc’s, Chardaonnay’s and a recent love of Pinot Grigio.  The Pinot Gris is a nice find, there was a slight hint of pear, and lots of fruit taste, which is what you would usually expect.  Nothing mind blowing just a nice ride, that gave a mellow buzz.

From The Bottle

This wine has been carefully crafted from our estate vineyards, and displays enticing notes fo pear and quince.  A vibrancy of fresh fruit and floral flavours progress through a refreshing mid-plate to a finish of peaches and cream, simply delicious.
