Saint Clair Pioneer Block Pinot Gris

A recent trip to New Zealand was an eye opener for us in relation to the diversification of grapes being grown there and the talents of the locals turning said grapes into yummy stuff.

Pinot Gris was a revelation for us and we were impressed with the massive variety of styles that varied across regions and producers.

The Saint Clai Pinot Gris is very aromatic with gorgeous pear and almond flavours. The wine is quite rich but is well balanced thanks to citrus / melon flavours offsetting the sweetness of the pear. 

This is an opulent wine and a great one to try for anyone overdosing on limey Sav Blancs.

 Shamelessly opulent.
