Description

Mount Brown is run by Father Tony and daughter Catherine... and her children are part of their legacy plans & wishes. The quintessential, passion fueled, KIWI Family wine business... their dedication to excellence and fun is showcased in all Mount Brown Wines. Their stated ambition... “... to produce great wine, to establish a reputation, to leave our land better than we found it, and most importantly... to leave a legacy that thrives.” Fine Wine Delivery brought Mount Brown wines into our portfolio circa 2013... their wines always shone on our tasting tables. Its extraordinary is the sensational quality they pack into every wine given their very modest prices. 2020 has been an exceptional vintage and this outrageously delicious Pinot Gris sets a NZ quality benchmark at the price. 94/100 Cameron Douglas – 5 Stars Wine Orbit - Gold NZ Aromatics Wine Show and a hefty 95/100 FWD confirm our opinions of Mount Brown and this 2020 release. It’s rich, fleshy, textured, lusciously fruited and superbly balanced by fine acidity and a subtle infusion of sweetness on the very close to dry finish. I think their food match suggestion is perfect... “An ideal match would be pork and vegetable spring rolls with sweet plum dipping sauce.” Enjoy through 2025.

Smells
Enticing aromas of tree ripened pears, sherbet and honeysuckle with hints of brioche and beeswax.

Tastes
Rich and ripe in style with an alluring oily texture embracing the abundant concentration. Fruit flavours of pear, yellow guava, rock melon and subtle banana are balanced by the rich texture, moderately soft acidity and a long engaging finish. It establishes benchmark quality at the price.

Awesome wine for the price. Slight oiliness, subtle acid and well balanced.
