Thistle Ridge Waipara Pinot Gris
Thistle Ridge is part of the Thomas family of wines which includes Greystone and Muddy Waters. The wines of Thistle Ridge are the value end of the trio focusing on purity of fruit of the Waipara region. Waipara is producing some of the best and most exciting New Zealand aromatic wines.
The grapes for this wine are grown on dense-clay soils at the base of the Omihi Hills and were harvested late in Autumn. The nose shows stone-fruit and pear and baking spices. The palate round and lightly mouthfilling with lucious ripe peach characters and a juiciness which is very appealing. It finishes with a slight spiciness that lingers there making you want another sip. More please.
