The Ned Pinot Gris is an excellent pick to bring to dinner as it pairs really well with so many foods ($16.99, 750ml). It’s clear that New Zealand’s number-one selling riesling is pleasing plenty of palates with its sweet-sour citrus serenade, plus there’s lots to love about Giesen Riesling’s lighter ABV of 10% ($14.99, 750ml). In Yealands Riesling, fresh citrus meets a touch of honey and the mouthful finishes up with a good dry kick ($15.99, 750ml). And Tohu Pinot Gris tastes like they’ve squeezed a Nelson fruit orchard into each bottle, with a bit of spice and butterscotch to round things out ($17.99, 750ml).
