Brookfields Vineyards Robertson Pinot Gris 2020, Hawke’s Bay

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 13-Aug-2020
Bright, very light yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is gently full with aromas of fresh nashi pear, red apple, lychee, lemon, melded with spices and mineral element. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, nuances of nashi pear, lychee, red apple compote, entwined with crunchy mineral and five-spice lingers to a long finish. There is subtle sweetness on the palate added a honey tone and gave it weight; balanced by lively acidity, flows with good energy, carries crunchy rocky mineral throughout the palate, leaves a refreshingly dry finish. This is a medium-bodied dry Pinot Gris with the richness of ripe fruit, honey, spices on a crunchy mineral texture. Match with coconut base curry and white meat over the next 3 years. Cool fermented to 13.5% alc, 4 g/l RS. Aged on its lees and weekly lees stirring. 18/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $21
