Domain Road Defiance Bannockburn Central Otago Pinot Gris 2022 $28

Paired with: Turkish Lentil Köfte by Annabel Langbein in the NZ Herald Nov 26th 2022

All those deep flavours of cumin, chilli, tomato and lemon deserve a wine with punch and pluck which is why I’m recommending this incredible, nashi, nutmeg and quince-laced wine from Bannockburn Central Otago. Alluringly aromatic and overflowing with white peach, yellow apples and finishing with a peacock’s tail of saucy spices, it’s a clean, slightly sweet and seriously delicious example from owner/winemaker Graeme Crosbie and his team.
