I am going through a nuts for New Zealand phase, having discovered a few great finds lately and so here is one of my latest…and NO it’s not a Sauvignon Blanc, although a white wine, it is the 3rd most popular white varietal in New Zealand and mimics very much the style that you might find in Alsace.
My wine pick is a Pinot Gris, the Tiki Estate Pinot Gris 2014, from Marlborough. $17.95
Tiki Wine and Vineyards was founded by Royce and Sue McKean and the name Tiki pays homage to Royce’s great great grandfather, Tiki
Terre Mihi, Chieftain of the Nagati Uenuku tribe.
