Neudorf Tiritiri Nelson Pinot Gris 2023 $27

The Finn family has harnessed Nelson’s famously long sunshine hours to create a fully solar-powered winery, heavily geared around organic winegrowing and sustainable production and using only electric forklifts and vineyard vehicles. AND the wines are packaged in new, lightweight glass bottles to reduce their carbon footprint. Their new pinot gris is generously dry, cleansing and intensely flavoursome. Creamy pear and baked apple collide with fresh acidity, mineral complexity, and palate richness from a wild ferment and partial malo. It’s epic with spiced pumpkin and pomegranate tagine.
