Rock Ferry Trig Hill Central Otago Pinot Gris 2018 $40
This is one of my favourite New Zealand pinot gris wines hands down. Hands all over the place in fact. Hand-harvested, whole bunch pressed and only the free-run juice was fermented with a combo of cultured and wild yeasts in a mixture of stainless steel tanks and older barrels, then transferred to a seasoned oak vessel for 8 months to mature. The result is a deliciously dry yet incredibly rich, juicy, spice-driven glass of deliciousness. Nashi, apple crumble and nectarine niceness abound and yet it boasts a super-fresh, lively finish. Fab.
