Ata Rangi ‘Lismore’ Martinborough Pinot Gris 2012

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 13-Nov-2012
Brilliant straw-yellow with light golden hues to the colour, pale edge. Gentle and ethereal aromas of ripe pears, white stonefruits and honeysuckle build in depth and volume on the nose, the fruit fresh and absolutely pristine with real clarity. Dry to taste, the fruit is still tightly bound, the core revealing flavours of yellow stonefruits, honey and minerals on a flowing and smooth, very finely textured palate. There is an understated power and drive, with balanced, lacy acidity present enhancing the gentle richness which leads effortlessly to a sustained and succulently nuanced finish. This is a reserved and subtly rich Pinot Gris with underlying depth and drive to develop well over the next 3-4 years. Match with fine Asian cuisine. Fruit predominantly from the ‘Lismore' vineyard on the Martinborough Terrace, hand-picked, WBP and fermented with 20% in seasoned oak to 13.5% alc. and 7 g/L rs. 18.0+/20 Nov 2012 RRP $28.00
