Huntaway Reserve – Pinot Gris 2011
Huntaway wines, known for their distinctive characteristics, include both mainstream and specialty varietals from Marlborough, Gisborne and Hawke’s Bay. Since Huntaway Reserve was launched in late 1996, the range has been awarded no less than six gold medals and three trophies, reflecting the outstanding quality of these wines. This wine represents a blend of pinot gris from some of its finest vineyards in Gisborne. In the glass, this wine is straw in colour with green tinges. A lifted bouquet of pear and melon with hints of spice is evident. There is a rich, oily-textured palate, layered with pear and spice flavours and an underlying savoury complexity leads to a lingering off-dry finish.
