Anchorage Nelson Pinot Gris 2012

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 07-Oct-2012
Very pale straw colour with green hues. This has a very elegant and tightly bound bouquet with attractive floral lift and esters, along with some herb notes. Medium-dry, soft pear flavours show with bright white florals and honey. This has a building body with soft mouthfeel. The acidity contributes to a good palate line which leads to a tight and slender finish. Fruit from the ‘Flett Road' and ‘Bridge Block' sites, fermented to 12.5% alc. and 11.4 g/L rs, the wine spending time on lees. 17.5+/20 Oct 2012 Bright, very pale straw colour with some lemon-green hues. Fresh aromas of mineral-infused pears and stonefruits are evenly expressed with liveliness and some depth. Off-dry to taste, light flavours of pears and white stonefruits are supported by good underlying acidity. This is gentle and soft, resulting in an attractively harmonious mouthfeel. The wine is restrained, and quite elegantly proportioned, but possesses a building richness, and finishes with subtle pear-like flavours. This gentle and harmonious Pinot Gris has a subtle richness. Match with seafood and poultry over the next 3-4 years. 12.3% alc. and 11 g/L rs. 17.0-/20 Jul 2012 RRP $17.50
