2016 Askerne Pinot Gris

Description

Askerne is making quite a name for themselves on the back of some outstanding aromatic whites, this 2016 Pinot Gris showing beautifully right from the moment it was released. An off dry and quite sophisticated style but without trading in on the lush, quaffable fruit that has made the style so popular, it'll be as popular with the everyday drinking crowd as it will be with the wine critics. Crafted by ex-Framingham, Te Awa and Dry River winemaker Ant McKenzie.

Smells

Aromatic honeysuckle, stonefruit, apples and pears, with a hint of quince.

Tastes

A full-bodied and off dry style, there are layers of spicy stonefruits, showing creamy textures and building to a long spicy finish. Top notch Pinot Gris to be enjoyed with Thai food or other pacific rim cuisine between now and 2021.
