GOLD - New Zealand International Wine Show 2021
Anchorage Florals Pinot Gris 2021, Nelson
Bright, pale straw-yellow with depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is gently full, leading pear, baked apple aromas with a hint of stonefruit and white florals. Medium-full bodied, off-dry to taste, aromas of pear and baked apple melded with lilies and a touch of five-spice. The mouthfeel is rounded with balanced sugar sweetness; a spicy acid line draws a moreish closing. Match with lemongrass & chilli pork and spicy fish taco over the next 2 years. Fermented in stainless steel to 12.5% alc. 16.5/20 pts (83 pts) Oct 2021

Anchorage ‘Florals’ Pinot Gris 2021 < 4 stars >
Well spined and exhilarating, a fresh clean statement to suit finger food or as an aperitif before a summer lunch. A touch of sweetness if searching for it; Balanced, a fine all-purpose silver medal wine; into 2023 with more to say after a few more months..
Peter Saunders September 2021
Harvested in the early mornings in March from our Flett Road vineyard, Pinot Gris fruit was delivered to the winery in perfect condition. Cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks ensured the stonefruit and spicey aromas were captured and held.
Rich and concentrated, our Florals Pinot Gris is succulent and juicy with pear and spice aromas. Subtle, balanced sweetness delivers a delicious finish.
