Terrific value here that is rarely seen at this price.
"The palate has plenty of energy and drive, and the wine carries along a very fine-textured line with fresh background acidity, leading to a long, lingering finish. This is a refine but intense and concentrated dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral and pear flavours along with nutty detail on a sleek, fine-textured palate with drive. Serve with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese fare over the next 3 years. Marlborough fruit, 90% from Blind River in the Awatere Valley and 10% from Taylors Pass, Southern Valley, fermented in tank with the Taylors Pass portion hand-picked, WBB and barrel-fermented in seasoned oak, warm with high solids, to 13.5% alc., and 6.1 g/L RS, the wine aged 2 months on lees. 18.5+/20 Sep 2018" Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
