I am such a fan of this winemaker and have introduced so many of my friends to the Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio. For me the Pinot Grigio is my favourite version of Pinot Grigio. I just love the Pink Blush colour without the taste of Blush. I always feel that I am being duped by drinking Blush wine as for me its an aperitif, so generally will have a glass or two of it before moving onto something White, then normally Red if I’m really going for it. With this wine though, duping is not on the cards it satisfies both my needs. I discovered these wines around 18 months ago when I bought a batch for my work colleagues at a very reasonable £7.50 per bottle. Obviously I kept a couple for myself before handing them out and have been hooked ever since. The Winemaker is Brent Norris from the Marisco Vineyards which is lovingly placed in the Waihopai Valley, Marlborough NZ, of which is on my never ending bucket list to go visit one of these days.
The taste is fresh, lush, Grapefruity, Gingery, Lychee like and reminds me of a young and innocent frivolous young lady in a pink floaty little number with sophistication on the brink of elegance. What will turn it into elegance will be keeping it for a couple of years before drinking if you can wait that long!
To be honest I could drink this wine till the Cows come home….
