This Awatere Valley Pinot Grigio 2012 is a cracking bottle of wine and great value from Tesco at £7.99.

Located in the southern Awatere Valley sub-region of Marlborough, Yealands Estate is arguably the most ambitious family-owned vineyard enterprise in New Zealand. Yealands Estate is a showcase of innovative environmental sustainability. The wines are carefully nurtured from the vine to the bottle with low impact methods, leading-edge green technologies and some very inventive thinking. Yealand’s carbon neutral winery was one of a handful in the world to achieve carboNZeroTM certification.

The Awatere Valley lies in the Marlborough region in New Zealand, and hot days and cool nights bring out the best from the Pinot Grigio grapes used here. The alluring aromas of rose petals and honeysuckle married with flavours of ripe pears and quince with a fruity, crisp finish.

Brimming with pear drop and nutty characters, leading to flavours of stone fruit and honey. The palate is full and shows wonderful balance between fruit sweetness and acidity, with a refreshing, crisp finish.
