2021 Mischief Waipara Pinot Gris
Like a vibrant fruit salad, this is straight up delicious and refreshing. Pears dominate, but there is so much more, with a hint of spice, tangy acidity and rounded mouthfeel, it ticks all the boxes. The perfect everyday delight.
Alc: 13.0% Residual Sugar: 6.0g/L
Wine Orbit: Beautifully fruited and brightly expressed, the wine shows apricot, Nashi pear, rockmelon and floral aromas on the nose, leading to a delectably appealing palate that's juicy and lingering. Gorgeously styled and silky to the finish. At its best: now to 2024. 93/100, 5 Stars.
Cam Douglas MS: Ripe, varietal and fruity with aromas and green pear and apple, a citrus layer, some white spice and sweet pith of grapefruit and mineral moments. An off-dry expression with flavours that mirror the bouquet, contrasted by a layer of acidity accentuating the mineral layers. There’s a delicate youthful spritz texture carrying the core of fruit and spice. Balanced and well made, lengthy and plush finish. Best drinking from day of purchase nd through 2024+. 90/100.
