Villa Maria Single Vineyard Seddon Marlborough Pinot Gris 2019 $29

So beautifully balanced it’s like a ballerina tiptoeing in pointe shoes across your tongue on a tightrope. Aromatically it delivers fresh nashi and yellow plum perfume in spades, while the cleansing, juicy, white nectarine notes wash soothingly over the palate and leave a lengthy, textural finish. Slightly less sweet than previous vintages, but it’s still luxurious to sip.
