Brookfields ‘Robertson’ Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2018

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 03-Dec-2018
Bright, pale golden-yellow colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is full with good volume and depth of yellow stonefruit aromas entwined with pear and yellow floral notes and subtle, savoury stonefruit kernel and nutty detail. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has gently rich flavours of yellow stonefruits along with pears and hints of savoury stonefruit kernels, with nutty suggestions adding interest. The mouthfeel is rounded with a moderately concentrated core, and the wine flows along a fine-textured line with light, refreshing acidity lending energy, leading to a soft finish with some length. This is a gently rich-fruited, dry Pinot Gris with yellow stonefruits, pear and floral flavours with some nutty interest on a rounded, fine-textured palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3 years. Fruit from the ‘Ohiti Estate’, cool-fermented in tank to 13.5% alc. and 5 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees undergoing batonnage. 18.0-/20 Dec 2018 RRP $20.00
