Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Gris
Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago
Our Pinot Gris has a textural element on the palate that is reflective of an Alsatian style whilst retaining a clean acidity that is the hallmark of our windblown glacial soils on the Cairnmuir terraces in Bannockburn. Notes of pear and fresh Braeburn apples are present, balanced by a hint of clove spice.
Delicious with a pear and walnut salad.
The wine is subtle and poised on the nose showing fresh pear, apple and lime peel characters with a lovely savoury nuance. It’s focused and elegantly weighted on the palate with textural mouthfeel and crisp acidity, finishing lingering and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2023. - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
