Spy Valley Pinot Gris 2011 - The Good Wine Co

They keep things pretty tight lipped at the nearby Waihopai spy bases but no such like at the Spy Valley winery - the cover has been blown wide open on this Trophy winning Pinot Gris!

Awarded "Champion Pinot Gris" at the recent Air NZ Wine Awards - the shiny new Trophy for the Trophy Cabinet back at the winery is also accompanied by an Pure Elite Gold medal. That means not only did it score an average of 19 or more out of 20, but it is 100% sustainably grown. 

Rich, lush and more intense than your average NZ Gris - not surprising it pipped 62 other wines in this category to become top dog!

It'll match brilliantly with a host of foods - chicken, fish, pasta and even roast pork.

Cloudy Bay Pelorus - The Good Wine Co

That considered, and having a Cloudy Bay wine named after you, must make you one of the most famous Dolphins ever in our books, after Flipper of course. Pelorus Jack was the name of a famous dolphin that followed ships between Wellington and Nelson around the early 1900's. This is Methode Traditionelle so it's made in the same way as Champagne but for a fraction of the cost.
