Main Divide Pokiri Reserve North Canterbury Late Picked Pinot Gris 2014 $24.99

If you’re looking for indulgence on a 750ml scale, then you’ve come to the right cul-de-sac.  With it’s intense, rose-gold colour, it looks like money in the glass and the nose explodes with toasty toffee, musky spices and baked stonefruit.  Caramel and butterscotch and manuka honey merge with marmalade and a crystalised citrus layer on the palate.  The acidity is fresh, the 14% alcohol is hedonistic and frisky and combined with 86g/l residual sugar, the team at Pegasus Bay have created a plush, decadent, sweetly structured wine that’ll well and truly wow the crowds.
