Quartz Reef Pinot Gris 2011

Quartz Reef Pinot Gris 2011

XXXXX

93/100

I've always rated Quartz Reef Pinot Gris as one of Central Otago's best. This wine confirms that view. It combines fresh pear, mineral and slightly estery fruit flavours with impressive weight and richness. A silken texture adds extra appeal. Gentle acidity and subliminal tannins drive a pleasantly drying finish.
