89pointsBrancott 2018 Flight Song Pinot Grigio (Marlborough)

Best Buy

Brancott advertises this low-alcohol wine as 20% lower in calories. While the marketing feels gimmicky, their Pinot Grigio succeeds far better than the previous vintage's Sauvignon Blanc. It should really be termed Pinot Gris, for this pink-tinged bottling offers heady aromatics closer to Alsace than Italy in style. A perfume of lychees, lime leaf, Asian pear, peach and honeysuckle make up the nose, while the palate finds a balance between creamy texture and lifted acidity. This crowd-pleasing white would be happy beside spicy cuisine. Christina Pickard
