Tasting notes by Michael Cooper
From the first vintage in 1986, for many years Dry River towered over other New Zealand Pinot Gris, by virtue of its exceptional body, flavour richness and longevity. The 2014 vintage (5*) is mouth-filling and gently sweet, with concentrated, ripe, stonefruit flavours to the fore, hints of spice and honey, balanced acidity, a slightly oily texture and a powerful finish. Already delicious, it shows much more personality than most New Zealand Pinot Gris.
95 pts - Bob Campbell (MW)
Full-flavoured, creamy Pinot Gris with flavours that include but also transcend the usual tree fruit/pear varietal focus with subtle tropical fruit, floral and exotic spice characters. It has a delicious texture - creamy but supported by almost subliminal tannins.
