Cross Hares ‘Ahuriri Run’ Canterbury Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 27-Aug-2018
Bright, light golden-yellow colour, paler on the rim. This has a full, broad nose with concentrated and deep aromas of yellow stonefruits and savoury stonefruit kernels from lees contact, unfolding yellow florals, The aromatics are forward and accessible. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has open and approachable flavours of savoury yellow stonefruits that gently fill the mouth and building some depth. The wine has a rounded core with slightly drying phenolic textures, and fresh lacy acidity enlivening the mouthfeel. Yellow floral elements unfold and carry to a moderately lingering finish. This is an up-front, broad and mouthfilling dryish Pinot Gris with savoury yellow stonefruit flavours and a palate with some grip. Match with Middle Eastern fare over the next 2 years. Fruit with approx. 5% botrytis, all fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and approx. 7 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months on lees. 240 dozen made. 16.5-/20 Aug 2018 RRP $18.00
