Anchorage Nelson Pinot Gris 2013

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 11-Jan-2014
Full, bright straw-yellow colour with the faintest suggestion of bush, pale on rim. The nose is very elegant and fresh, with tightly bound aromas of white stonefruits, white florals and a pure, steely, cutting, youthfully mineral edge. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of stonefruits and pears are initially restrained, but open to reveal honied notes and richness. The mouthfeel is rounded, but positive in body, and the sweetness well-balanced by refreshing acidity. This is clean and pure with clarity of expression. The flavours follow a fine line and gently taper to a long, lingering, resfreshingly dry finish. This is a well-balanced off-dry Pinot Gris with white stonefruit and honied flavours. Match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 3 years. Cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 9.9 g/L RS, the wine given lees contact. 1,100 cases made. 17.5-/20 Jan 2014 RRP $18.99
