Aronui ‘Single Vineyard’ Nelson Pinot Gris 2013

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 22-Jun-2014
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with some green hues. This has a softly full and voluminous nose of ripe white and yellow stonefruits along with nuances of yellow florals and honeysuckle, expressed with clarity and freshness. Medium-dry to taste, gently luscious and succulent flavours of stonefruits are entwined with honeysuckle, forming a tightly bound core. The palate has good weight and presence, and flows smoothly, guided by very fine textures and some alcoholic drive. Bright underlying acidity enhances the lifted aromatics and enriches the fruit with freshness and liveliness, and carries the stylish flavours to a moderately long and subtle finish. This is a gently luscious and well-balanced medium-dry Pinot Gris with good mouthfeel and presence. Match with Asian cuisine over the next 3-4+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Whenua Matua’ vineyard, WBP and fermented in stainless-steel, with 10% in barriques to 14.0% alc. and 11.6 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 weeks on lees with batonnage. 18.0/20 Jun 2014 RRP $21.95
