What’s in the glass tonight August 5th


Main Divide Waipara Pinot Gris 2013 – $$

Sweet tropical bouquet; golden stonefruit and pears; and lots of it. 14%.

In the mouth it’s big and flavoursome. Mandarin oranges, apricots, spice & packed with sweetness. Evidence of botrytis and lees stirring. Nothing shy, retiring or anodyne about this Gris! Some great wine is emerging from of Waipara. 4
