This is a lovely wine with a good bit of acidity, some green apple flavors, and some oak. The wine for my tastes is more like a Sauvigon Blanc than a Pinot Gris. No real peach in the taste with a hint of an orange peal tangy/bitterness to it. I enjoyed the wine. Not bad at all! I wouldn’t run out and buy a case but I wouldn’t be rushing to take back any more of it I had either. This is the kind of wine you could easily serve to non wine lovers and would go well with a lot of different foods …
SILENI CELLAR SELECTION PINOT GRIS 2008
Hawke’s Bay, North Island
This Pinot Gris from the warm Hawkes Bay region is another notable bargain. The nose features lovely peach, pear and apple aromas. It’s just off-dry with a round texture and juicy fruit flavours beautifully balanced by a bright seam of acidity. Try it with Asian noodle dishes.
