Description

Mention Waiheke Island and one name springs to mind; Man O War, gorgeous setting on the beach front, a tasting room reminding you of a summer house on a tropical island, oh and exciting wines to boot. What a package!!!! They are the go-to winery on Waiheke for their dynamic, interesting wines that offer consistency of quality and price. This Exiled Pinot Gris highlights this point to a tee. From the exceptional 2019 vintage, a true reflection of an almost perfect year where the fruit was ripe, flavoursome and for the first time in their history, zero botrytis.

Smells

hedonistic aromas of ripe peaches, yellow guava, lemonade (sweet lemons) with nuances of freshly roasted chicken sitting in its baking juices alongside roasted fennel. Reminds me of Alsace, the home of Pinot Gris.

Tastes

Not your average Pinot Gris, rather a powerful expression that shows the true potential of this variety when crops are low and the grapes were harvested are at the perfect stage of ripeness. A wonderfully rich, oily and creamy texture that titillates the senses with a lemon zest acidity giving balance to the concentrated and exciting palate. Honeysuckle, cream of soda and ripe stone fruit flavours prevail, consistent with a riper Pinot Gris that has superb balance and is quite frankly darn drinkable. The perfect partner for roast chicken with all the trimmings, this summer and through till 2024.
