Ta­mar Val­ley, Tas

13.5 per cent A bright, youth­ful, pale straw colour, the nose clean and fairly sub­tle at this stage fol­lowed by a more ex­pres­sive palate show­ing fruity, al­most Gewürz­tramin­er­like spice on top of some savoury, phe­no­lic char­ac­ters fi nish­ing with a long, savoury- dry af­ter­taste. A good food wine. MUD HOUSE 2012 PINOT GRIS, $ 22

South Is­land, NZ

13.5 per cent Dis­tinct lemon balm and musk aro­mas with musk com­ing more to the fore in the mouth, the palate bal­anced and smoothly tex­tured but be­com­ing all a bit too musk lolly- ish for me. Some might love it.
