Judges Comments:

Pinot Gris is one of the signature grapes in the Waipara Valley in North Canterbury, capturing an abundance of sunshine from their north-facing vineyards, enriching the fruit intensity and textural mouthfeel. Gorgeous ripe pear and quince with light spice nuances, this is splendidly rounded and lingering, making it suitable for richer dishes such as coconut-based curries and spaghetti carbonara.

Pairing Recommendation:

Pinot Gris is a gorgeous all-rounder when it comes to its ability to pair with such a variety of food styles. Excellent with picnic nibbles, spring rolls and dumplings, its also flavoursome enough to complement chicken soup, coconut-based curries and stir-fries.
