Petane Station Hau Hau Block Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2019 $30

For starters just try to peel your eyes away from the glorious golden-ness that pours into the glass in order to command your arm to actually raise it to your nose.  You’ll be hit by roast pear, caramelised, spiced apple and pecan pie perfume which, if you can then persuade your hand to lower the goblet toward your mouth, will send a tsunami of tropical tang across the tastebuds. This tiny estate located in Eskdale has personality-plus when it comes to pinot gris production, consistently turning out rich, dry, mouthfilling styles that really satisfy.  Yum!
