Wine review: Invivo Pinot Gris 2012, New Zealand

Pinot gris
Food Pairing
Freshwater fish

Best known for sauvignon blanc, New Zealand excels in a few other varieties as well, pinot gris prominent among them. Some producers favour a sweet profile but this lovely example is essentially dry. Ripe pear and peach flavours are carried on a substantial frame, pulled in tight by fresh acidity. Perfect for simply prepared freshwater fish; $17.95 in B.C. till May 3, imported in Alberta by Summit Fine Wines.
