Expert's Choice: New Zealand whites beyond Sauvignon Blanc

New Zealand whites, Richardson
6 of 20

Richardson, Pinot Gris, Central Otago 2010 

Pear and lychee nose. Textured and gently oaky from the wild yeast ferment (20% in used barrels). The style is just off-dry and though it has high alcohol, it’s not apparent. Very impressive. 18.5pts/20
