Valli Vineyards The Real McCoy Orange Pinot Gris 2020
The colour of the wine comes from the grape skins and the semi-oxidative handling. The 2020 Real McCoy has a delicate, soft tangerine hue. The nose is deliciously salty with grated orange peel and white blossom. On the palate there is almond, citrus, apricot, and cream soda. The mouthfeel is both creamy and silky with a lovely hint of fine tannin and fresh acidity at the finish. 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.
