Bendigo Hills Pinot Gris 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 04-Aug-2021
Bright, moderate yellow with depth, slightly lighter edged. The nose is full and voluminous, nuances of flint, savoury bread crust melded with honeysuckle and stonefruit. Medium-full bodied, dry to taste, aromas of Nashi pear, apricots entwined with honeysuckle, fennel flower and a hint of flint. The mouthfeel is unctuous and flows with chalky phenolics; acidity is lively, draws a long line to finish. This elegant Pinot Gris possesses ripe fruit and lively acidity on a textural palate. Match with lemongrass fish and wontons over the next 3-4 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented to 13.5% alc, 1.5g/l RS, matured on lees for 12 months. BioGro organic certified. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $21.99
