Brookfields ‘Robertson’ Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 14-Sep-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, paler on the rim. This has a fresh, full nose with moderately deep yellow stonefruit and exotic floral aromas along with a little honeysuckle and mineral notes. Dry to taste, the flavours of yellow stonefruits form a rounded core, unfolding nuances of florals, honeysuckle, nuts and minerals. The palate shows good body and the mouthfeel is round and smooth-flowing with balanced acidity and a very light, fine-textured line guiding the wine to a soft, gentle finish of stonefruits and honeysuckle. This is a rounded, dry Pinot Gris with good body and depth of stonefruit flavours, along with honeysuckle, florals and minerals on a smooth-flowing palate. Match with Asian fare over the next 3 years. Fruit from the ‘Ohiti Estate’, cool-fermented to 13.5% alc. and 7.0 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees with batonnage. 17.5/20 Sep 2017 RRP $20.00
