27 Seconds Encore Pinot Gris 2020, North Canterbury

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 12-Apr-2021
Bright, pale yellow with a slight green hue, very slightly lighter on the rim, youthful. The nose is elegantly full, fragrant aromas of lily, honeysuckle entwined with ripe pear, melon and pollen. Medium-full bodied, dry-ish to taste, aromas of crunchy Nashi pear, melon rushed in, along with citrus, honeysuckle, floral perfume, and five-spice lends a crisp, citrusy finish. The palate is clean with crunchy acidity, flows with good energy; subtle powdery phenolic added texture, enriched by a hint of honey. Subtlely, fine five-spice lengthen the closing with elegance. Match with five-spice pork and pine nut fish over the next 3-5 years. 14% alc. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $21
