Craggy Range ‘Te Muna Road Vineyard’ Martinborough Pinot Gris 2015

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 28-Sep-2015
Bright, even, pale straw colour with light yellow hues, pale on rim. This has a very fresh and tightly bound nose with delicate aromas of white and rose-petal florals along with subtle notes of pears, and nuances of spices, herbs, and piquant, flinty mineral elements that grow in intensity with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, elegantly proportioned and lifted flavours of exotic florals, spiced pears and minerals show with good intensity and drive on a smooth flowing, near-unctuous palate. The wine follows a fine-textured line with subtle phenolics and soft, integrated acidity. The flavours carry to an elegant, soft and dry finish with lingering exotic florals. This is an elegantly concentrated, dry Pinot Gris with exotic florals and a good driven line. Match with Thai, Japanese and Vietnamese fare over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit, 65% WBP and fermented in stainless steel to 13.7% alc. and 4.1 g/L RS, the wine aged 5 months on lees. 18.0-/20 Oct 2015 RRP $26.95
