    If you’re looking for a bargain buy Pinot Gris, it’s time to head East.

    East Marlborough Pinot Gris was actually due to head west before a deal went south. Made a top Marlborough producer exclusively for an Aussie hotel chain in New South Wales who, due to Covid and lockdowns, have back pedaled on a deal leaving the winery here little choice but to flog it quickly (and discretely) on the NZ market.

    We’ve promised not to reveal their name but we can tell you this ’19 vintage Marlborough Pinot Gris is still drinking superbly. Made in the typical off-dry style that most Marlborough Pinot Gris sits at – lush peach and stonefruit flavours with just a touch of sweetness and a dryish finish. Highly drinkable, highly refreshing. Grab a case or two and quaff away through the summer ahead!

    Please note – as this wine was an exclusive label for a hotel chain it has never been sold in retail. However the winery here in NZ has indicated on the domestic market this wine would retail up to $17.
