Brightwater Gravels Nelson Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 07-Aug-2018
Bright straw-yellow with lemon-gold hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is fulsome and voluminous, with well-packed aromas of yellow stonefruits harmoniously melded with yellow florals, hints of honeysuckle, unfolding nutty lees elements. This is up-front and shows moderate depth. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has up-front flavours of white and yellow stonefruits that form an elegant heart. The fruit fills the front palate and is rounded in mouthfeel, underlined by light phenolic textures that lend some presence. Lacy acidity carries the wine to a light, slender finish. This is an up-front and fulsome off-dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit and floral flavours that carry to a slender finish. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 2+ years. 100% Pinot Gris fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 7.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 16.5/20 Aug 2018 RRP $20.00
