Chasing Harvest Pinot Gris 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 25-Nov-2022
Bright, straw-yellow with a hint of green and depth, even colour throughout. This has a rich, elegant bouquet filled the glass with orchard fruit, apricot, hay, yellow flowers, flint and spice. Full-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of apple, pear entwined apricot, honeysuckle, dried floral and five-spice. The fruit is concentrated, complex, and supported by fresh acidity; flint and spice elements elevate and enrich the palate. This well-crafted Pinot Gris shows depth and interest with a rich, textural mouthfeel and refreshing acid line. Match with fish sausage and pork rillette over the next 5 years. Fruit from Alexandra, whole bunch pressed, racked to 500-litre demi-muid (60%) and stainless steel (40%) with indigenous yeast, aged on lees. 14% alc. 98 cases produced. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $32
