The wine is a dry style with a good mouth-feel. Drink now, or cellar through 2014! A great deal at 54% off the RRP!
Sam Kim of Wine Orbit describes the Maori Point Pinot Gris 2009: "Very pale straw-green in colour, quite youthful in appearance, this has a full, voluminous nose with shy white stonefruit and mineral aromas, and a touch of flint. Dry to taste and full-bodied. A solid, tight wine with good weight and textured presence..."
Halfway between Cromwell and Wanaka, on the bank of the Clutha river at Tarras, Maori Point is surrounded by mountains, snow-covered in winter. The area is usually cloud-free and dry. The southern boundary is sheltered by pine trees but the nor-west wind can funnel round between the mountain ranges and sweep across the vineyard. Perfect conditions for aromatic whites and Pinot Noir.
