Monowai Pinot Gris 2018

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit review    90 points    4.5 stars

It is beautifully fruited and elegantly fragrant on the nose showing ripe stone fruit, poached pear, rockmelon and subtle spice aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is fleshy and smooth. The wine is fruit expressive and immediately appealing with plenty of tasty flavours. At its best: now to 2020. May 2019.

Tasting Notes

An off-dry styled pinot gris, with aromas of spicy pear, melon and citrus, followed by a smooth rounded palate. The up front fruit flavours linger due to a delicately balanced acidity.
