Mud House South Island Pinot Gris 2012


Made from grapes sourced from the Waipara Valley (50%) and the remainder from Marlborough and Nelson, this New Zealand pinot gris has aromatics of pear and slightly candied lemon rind.  The palate is verging on off dry with flavours reminding of sweet pears and lemon rind.  The finish is short, and it presents as relatively crisp.  Overall, while mostly balanced in expression, this is a fairly simple sort of a wine and I felt that the residual sugar on the palate papered over some of the lemon rind notes to mixed effect.  Acceptable
