Nobilo Pinot Gris

It had been a while since I'd had a Pacific Rim wine, so I grabbed this one on a whim. This was a New Zealand wine, bragging that it was from the east coast. That surprised me, as I expected west-- but what do I know about trade winds?

The bottle was impressively designed, which showed great forethought. It was not oaky like Aussies and far less acidic than Chileans. It had a bold flavor, but not overpowering.

It was more expensive than most of my 'every day' wines, so it gets 5 of 10.
