Kim Crawford Pinot Gris Marlborough 2014

Kim Crawford Pinot Gris Marlborough 2014: Pale gold color; delicate nose; delivers with good fruit on the palate, peach, apple, pear, melon, honey; clean, bright pleaser, good acidity. Kim Crawford and his wife, Erica, have been meteoric trailblazers in New Zealand wines since the late 1990s, charging onto the world wine stage in the 2000s with year-after-year 90-point scores from the various panjandrums of wine scores. While KC is most noted for superb sauvignon blanc, this pinot gris has delightful fruit-forward sweetness with blade of New Zealand grass and expected food-friendly, palate-cleansing acidity. Refreshing, easy drinking, appropriate price. $16Kim Crawford Pinot Gris Marlborough
