Domain Road Defiance Pinot Gris 2022, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 07-Nov-2022
Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is elegant and gentle, with aromas of pear and stonefruit interweaved blossom. Medium-full bodied, off-dry to taste, aromas of peach and sweet pear melded with pear blossom, honey and ginger liftings. Voluminous and opulent on the palate, contributed by sweetness and an oily, creamy flow. Balanced acidity carries spice to a plush finish. This off-dry Pinot Gris shows a lush palate with honey, ripe pear and peach with floral and spice details. Match with spicy Asian fare over the next 5 years. Fruit from Defiance vineyard on Felton Road, whole bunch pressed, cold settled for two days, inoculated with selected yeast, fermented in tank 70% and older oak barrels 30%. 13.5% alc, 10.8 g/l RS. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $28
