Hawkshead Pinot Gris, 2017, Central Otago, New Zealand
£30.30 (inc VAT)
Ornithologically-inspired winemaking, in the only continental climate in NZ.
Raising grapes in the Gibbston Valley is a wicked amount of work, but the result is a squeaky clean pinot gris from Hawskhead. Elegant minerality with fresh lime, peaches and fruit blossom.
