Ra Nui Pinot Gris 2020

End of vintage supplier clearance on a superb summer 'Gris!

From Ra Nui wines, who pride theirselves on producing hand crafted wines from uniquely flavoured vineyards across Marlborough, comes a highly aromatic 'Gris. Grapes were picked in the cool of night then gently pressed and slowly fermented to extract the abundant flavours of the fruits.

91 Points 4,5 Stars, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Youthfully charming and delicately fragrant, the wine shows white flesh peach, green pear and white floral aromas with a touch of savoury nuance. It's juicy and vibrant on the palate offering lovely fruit purity backed by fine texture and crisp acidity, finishing long and lively. At its best: now to 2024"

87/100, Bob Campbell MW "Gentle, off-dry pinot gris with restrained green apple, pear and honeysuckle flavours. Crisp acidity gives the wine a mouth-watering finish. More pinot grigio in style." Mach 2021.

4 Stars, Michael Cooper's Buyers Guide "The 2020 vintage (4*) is a sub-regional blend, grown in the Wairau Valley. Light lemon/green, it is freshly scented, mouthfilling and lively, with strong pear, lychee and spice flavours, balanced acidity and a dryish, finely poised finish. Drink now or cellar."
