Some of the best wines coming out of New Zealand at the moment are a) not made from Sauvignon Blanc and b) don't come from Marlborough. We often worry that the Kiwis have been pigeon-holed as one trick ponies, but here's a wine that will have that label quashed very quickly. A beautiful Pinot Gris from the Waipara Valley, full of tropical fruit and classic exotic spice. It's dry, but layered with richness. A great partner for spicy spring rolls and good plum dipping sauce.
