Kumeu River Village Pinot Gris 2019
NZ Pinot Gris from award winning winery
Kumeu River, northwest of Auckland is without a doubt one of NZ’s finest wine producers … their chardonnays are world renowned. Made by Master of Wine Michael Brajkovich from sustainably grown Pinot Gris grapes that are hand-harvested and sorted, then gently whole-bunch pressed. Fermented using local wild yeast with extended maturation on the yeast lees.
The aromas have typical peach and stone fruit notes tinged with the floral perfume that we have come to expect from Pinot Gris. The wine is lively with a lovely line of acidity, complex and lingers on the palate. Pinot Gris is a variety that goes particularly well with food, including quite intensely flavoured dishes. It is also one of the few wine styles that can handle the spiciness of chilli.
This 2019 is the smartest Pinot gris release made by these guys… we love the racy ‘Grigio’ style freshness and depth of fruit. This is really very good !
93 points, The Real Review, Bob Campbell MW “A cleverly crafted offering from Michael Brajkovich, rich, complex and wonderfully textural, with defined peach and floral aromas and long, clean fruit flavours supported by hints of spice and almond.”
