2018 Mt. Beautiful Pinot Gris, North Canterbury, New Zealand (750ml)
Our Pinot Gris is an invitation to experience the unexpected. Aromatically the wine is floral with a nutty undertone featuring scents of quince blossom and hazelnuts. On the palate, it’s dry and full-bodied, warm and ripe with luscious ripe Nashi pear flavors backed by sensuous texture. It has a cream-like finish; clean with a crisp citrus twist at the end.
There’s a very fresh and lively set of peaches and mangoes here. This really nails the richness of fruit with great balance and depth. Fleshy, soft, and fresh at the finish.

The 2018 Mt. Beautiful Pinot Gris brings the garden into a glass of wine. This wine exhibits lovely aromas and flavors of dried herbs, fresh flowers, and a hint of mineral. Pair it with stir-fried clams in a light ginger and garlic sauce. (Tasted: June 7, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
