Ata Rangi Lismore Pinot Gris 2021, Martinborough

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 22-Nov-2021
Bright, golden-straw-yellow with depth, even colour throughout. The nose is full and tightly bound, aromas of apricot, spice poached pear interweave jasmine and citrus blossom, enriched by a scent of creamy lees. Full-bodied, dry-ish to taste, a rich texture on the palate contributed by concentration and weight of creamy lees. Aromas of poached pear, lemon and citrus rind melded with an amalgam of spice and power, jasmine floral lingers to a fulsome, dry finish. The wine possesses lacy, balanced acidity, injects vitality and freshness to the lush, flavoursome palate. This is a rich textured Pinot Gris with lush fruit, fulsome mouthfeel with spice and power, classically stylish. Match with chicken liver parfait and tarte flambée over the next 5-7 years. Handpicked fruit from Lismore, Walnut Ridge, whole bunch pressed, wild-fermented in large format barrels, aged on lees for 6 months, 14.5% alc, 4.1g/l RS. No MLF. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Nov 2021 RRP $32
