Waywood Wines Pinot Grigio 2011

Opened this alongside the Te Aro Pinot Grigio, an interesting comparison regardless of differences in vintage and region.

Lovely clarity to the wine, a faint golden tinge to it.  Pronounced apple and pear - good aroma - a hint of blossom, some citrus providing further allure.

Weightier on the palate, the extra degree of alcohol showing itself, a broader profile - some might say it's straying toward Gris territory.

A hint of spice of the finish, acid a little angular, works with the spicier elements to provide a little extra dimension.  88/ 89 - Good
