Kim Crawford Pinot Gris 2019
Wonderfully lifted aromatics of pear and Braeburn apples with pleasant hints of spice. Ripe fruit flavours of pears, honeysuckle and hints of orange. Finishes soft and round.
Kim Crawford's Pinot Gris is vibrant, rich and ripe with lovely depth of fruit concentration.
Crawford's Pinot Gris comes from grapes grown from vineyards in the two main Marlborough valleys.
Kim Crawford started out in 1996 from a small cottage in Auckland. From such humble beginnings, the wines soon garnered a worldwide reputation and following. The esteemed winemaker Anthony Walkenhorst joined in 2005 and today still works the estate's outstanding (and predominantly) coastal sites, where the grapes benefit from long days, clean sea breezes and crisp nights together with a long and dry autumn season to allow slow even ripening and a wonderful flavor intensity and sophisticated acidity.
Anthony describes himself as the "guardian of flavour" crafting wines that are vibrant, bold and authentic, and redolent of their terroir.
