The Ned Marlborough Pinot Gris

By far the most colourful gris out of Marlborough in 2012 – a salmon-peach approaching rosé hue – this is also one of the most textural wines of the vintage yet. Crucially, its textural palate does not produce hardness on the finish, but culminates in lively acidity, fresh pear, peach and lemon zest, with a lick of sweetness to keep it all in check. $15 at 1st Choice.
