Valli The Real McCoy Pinot Gris Orange 2019
$39.90 inc. GST
95/100 – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2018 vintage)
Tasting Note: The colour of the wine comes from the grape skins and the semi-oxidative handling. The 2019 Real McCoy has a brilliant, peachy/tangerine hue. The nose is laden with stone-fruit aromas (apricot and peach) with lychee, orange blossom and rose petals. On the palate there is almond, Turkish delight, apricot and cream soda. The fine tannin gives the wine both depth and length while the fresh acidity sings loudly of Gibbston. Delicious on its own, the Real McCoy invites many opportunities for food pairing including charcuterie platters, pork roast, risotto, grilled salmon, Chinese, Lebanese and Japanese cuisines, hard cheeses and a Kiwi classic – fish and chips.
