A peachy and rounded style, this lovely off-dry Pinot Gris from Misha's really shows how effortlessly delicious Central Otago aromatics can be. Most of the wine was tank fermented to retain fruit purity, but a third or so saw some old oak to give it that roundness and complexity. An aperitif or especially a food-friendly example, give this one a try.

What The Critics Say

94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"This is beautifully styled and immediately appealing; the elegantly fragrant bouquet shows white nectarine, poached pear, floral and apple blossom characters, leading to a rounded palate that displays excellent mid palate weight and texture, wonderfully framed by refreshing acidity. The wine offers lovely fruit purity with a gorgeous flowing mouthfeel. Style: Dry. $28.00. Feb 2018." Drink 2018 - 2022

93/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Delicately aromatic pinot gris with apple, quince, ginger, malt and subtle savoury and nutty characters. Quite a complex wine, with barely perceptible sweetness and a pleasantly drying finish. 16/2/2018." Drink 2018 - 2023

18.5/20 Raymond Chan

"Brilliant straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-green hues, a little lighter edged. This has a very fresh, full and voluminous nose with bright and vibrant aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits and exotic yellow florals along with lifted tropical fruit elements, honeysuckle, and fresh fermentation esters. This is bold and intense in expression. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate possesses a taut core of fragrant yellow stonefruits and florals, along with exotic fruit nuances, spices and honey, unveiling lifted fresh fermentation esters. The wine has presence but retains a degree of elegance, promising to unfold more. The palate has some alcohol drive, and is balanced by fresh and bright acidity, the wine leading to a sustained finish. Match with Asian cuisine. The fruit gently crushed with stalks, 80% free-run juice cool-fermented in tank and 20% press portion indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned French oak to 13.5% alc. and 5 g/L RS. 623 dozen made. 18.5/20 Feb 2018 RRP $28.00"
