The Junction ‘Red Card’ Pinot Gris 2020

Junction Red Card Pinot Gris

From Central Hawke’s Bay, and the winner of the Trophy for Champion Pinot Gris at the Royal Easter Show Wine Awards this year. A very pale gold colour in the glass, with clear varietal aromas of freshly cut pear, nutmeg, biscuit crumb, lychee, nectarine and a lovely floral note of elderflower. Medium-bodied and with a plush, weighty style that fills the palate with intense, concentrated stone-fruit and honeyed baking spice flavours. A balanced acidity gives some drive through those layers of lush plumpness. Finish is elegant and with great staying power. A wine with great character. 91pts.
