Wow, what an absolute doozy! Trophy winner for the No.1 Pinot Gris at the NZ Wine of the Year Awards 2018 (the official wine show of the NZ wine industry!), a delicious style from whoa-to-go and all at a price that won’t stretch the purse strings. It’s a Champion alright!
We call him Mr Misty Cove but his real name’s Andrew. The Misty Cove label is the hard graft of southern man Andrew and his small team who cover every base in their boutique wine business. From the wine making and vineyard work, to sales and marketing. Andrew’s not interested in bourgeois BS when it comes to wine making. “Good wine for good times” as he puts it.
In fact they prefer to let the medals do the talking and it’s said about everything you need to know with these gongs…

Made in an off-dry style, this is a ripper for the money with a heap of rich, spicy fruit flavours and a dry finish. Bargain.
