Dunstan Road Central Otago Pinot Gris 2018 $25

Hand’s down this is one of the best pinot gris I’ve tasted all year.  Delicately scented with nashi, white peach and notes of nana’s bathroom cupboard (talc, coldcream, lavendr), while on the palate it is plush with pear, poached quince, honeysuckle and soft spices.  The acidity dances across the tongue and creates a beautifully prickly texture on the gums.  A teensy bit of natural sweetness balances the wine out beautifully.  Love it!
