Q Waitaki Valley Pinot Gris 2012

I received this sample from Jules at Q Wines in New Zealand. As much as I’d like to think my Qwine name is starting to gain some global dominance, I don’t have any affiliation with this winery.

The fruit comes from the Waitaki Valley which is on the boundary of North Otago and Canterbury on the south island. A single vineyard wine, it is hand picked and sustainable viticulture practices as used.

Wickedly fresh and vibrant, this is packed with white fleshed peaches and pears. A whiff of pineapple husk and white field flowers add further interest to the very engaging aromas thrown out.

The stone fruit and crumble laden palate is crisp but with a textural edge. A deceptive length delivers a lingering creaminess.

I’d go here again for sure.

Very good +
