Rogue Vine The Original Rogue Bay of Island Pinot Gris 2019 $25

Look closely at the wine in your glass and you’ll see it’s actually got a lick of pink to it. That’s because pinot gris grapes have a sort of pinky-grey colour and the good folk at Rogue have left the skins in contact with the juice for a smidge of time to sink in some pink. OR it could be pink from the mysterious, ye-shall-not-be-named rogue vine in row 22. Either way, I love the nashi, fig and peachy punchiness, the crisp yet rich mouthfeel and its incredible length of flavour. This little champion from Kerikeri is awesome.
