Brancott Estate Flight Song 2013 Pinot Grigio, $11.99-$13.99, 88 points, poured a light glossy brass color trending gray toward the glass shallows.
Orchard fruit on the nose was soft and inconspicuous.
Light-bodied with fair-plus acidity, bright and quaffable with subtle, but good flavors of quince and lemon.
Finished okay with a well integrated 13% alcohol and slightly sweet citrus notes.
This was the only New Zealand Pinot Grigio I could find, but I wanted (not disappointed at all) to get a sense of just what the people down-under were doing with this varietal.
