Pinot Gris, Pounamu, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2014, 13%
Cloudy Bay’s former head winemaker – single vineyard – value for money
Pounamu is a treasured and trusted green stone found only in the South Island of New Zealand, not far from the vineyard where this wine is grown.
To New Zealanders Pounamu is considered a symbol of peace and it is often referred to as being the "link between heaven and earth, the stars and the water" - which are also the key environmental elements for grape-growing.
Like its namesake Pounamu Pinot Gris is a jewel. It's special, spirited and authentic.
An opulent wine. Characters reminiscent of sun-blush apricots, white peach and hints of toasted hazelnuts.
Well-matched with shellfish, white meat or peanut satay. When it comes to cheese enjoy this gorgeous Pinot Gris with aromatic cheeses like Munster and Langres, or mountain classics like Gruyere Reserve and Appenzeller Edel-Wurzig.
