Carrick Organic Pinot Gris 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 14-Apr-2021
Bright, pale yellow, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is gently full, elegantly presented, nuances of pear, stonefruit, interweave subtle floral fragrances and a fine dusting of spices. Medium-bodied, aromas of stonefruit, pears have vibrancy and elegance, melded with white floral scent and a light dusting of spices. Textural palate build-up by fine-textured phenolics, lees-aged creamy palate and richness of spices. Lively acidity brings freshness and balance to the palate. This is a flavoursome Pinot Gris with ripe fruit, spices and textural details. Match with satay chicken and Thai cuisine over the next 3-5 years. Handpicked fruit from Cairnmuir Terraces and Arthur’s Vineyards, wild yeast fermented in a combination of old French oak barrels (55%) and stainless tank. Barrels portion were fermented to dryness, a touch of residual sugar left in the tank portion and aged 7 months before the wine was blended and bottled. 12.5% alc, 3.53 g/l RS. BioGro organic certified. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $28
