Anchorage Nelson Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 17-Aug-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, a little paler on the rim. This has a fresh, light nose with attractively aromatic yellow stonefruit and honeysuckle notes, along with a suggestion of rose-petal florals. The aromas grow in volume with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses light white and yellow stonefruit flavours with subtle floral and honeysuckle notes. The mouthfeel is lively, crisp and refreshing, the fruit sweetness balanced by lacy acidity. The wine follows a fine phenolic thread which leads to a moderately sustained finish with restrained stonefruit and honeysuckle flavours. This is a light, off-dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit and honeysuckle flavours and a fresh palate. Match with Asian fare over the next 2-3 years. Pinot Gris fruit cool and moderately cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 5.2 g/L RS, the wine aged several months on gross lees. 16.5+/20 Aug 2016 RRP $17.50
