Spy Valley do plenty to build layers and layers of flavour and texture into their full bodied Pinot Gris and it works. Consistently this wine is a high achiever on the show and review circuit and in our opinion, always one of the best in its price bracket. 
Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Fruit aromas of quince, lemon, white peach and mango, with a suggestion of ginger and nougat. A powerful wine with concentrated fruit at its core. The natural acid balance is soft lending the wine a full-bodied, long and dry structure."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, May 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour pale golden-green hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant and well-proportioned with fragrant aromas of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with exotic florals, a hint of honeysuckle and a suggestion of musk. The aromatics form a well-concentrated heart and the nose builds in intensity and penetration with aeration. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a positive and deeply packed core with flavours of yellow stonefruits and exotic florals, along with nuances of honeysuckle, nutty lees elements and a little musk. The fruit possesses aromatic detail and interest, with good linearity. The mouthfeel is rounded with balanced, integrated acidity, and the wine is smooth-flowing with some underlying phenolics, power and drive, leading to a rounded, long-lingering finish. This is a well-concentrated, medium-dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, exotic florals and honeysuckle notes on a palate with good drive and power. Serve with Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the ‘Johnson Vineyard’, Waihopai, and the ‘Outpost Vineyard’, Omaka, hand-picked over four passes, WBP, and fermented partially by indigenous yeasts in stainless-steel and wood with high solids to 14.0% alc. and 6.5 g/L RS."
