Domaine Rewa Pinot Gris 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 01-Apr-2022
Bright, pale onion-skin colour, even throughout. This has a soft and youthful bouquet with aromas of ripe pear, baked apple interweave white floral and ginger dusting. Medium-bodied, dry-ish to taste, round and oily mouthfeel carries ripe pear, baked apple melded with citrus peels, unfolding white floral, honey and ginger spice lingering to a long, harmonious finish. The fruit is pure with good depth and flavour. Time on skins contributes to the colour and fine-sandy phenolics to the mouthfeel; balanced acidity support and integration lend a long, dry closing. This elegant, harmonious Pinot Gris features ripe fruit, balance, and a smooth, textural mouthfeel. Match with pork terrine and Asian spicy cuisine over the next 3-5 years. Fermented in 2 batches, 50% wild-fermented in amphorae with whole berries, aged on skins for 6 months before drained without pressing; 50% wild-fermented in mixed-age oak barrels, stirred weekly. Underwent MLF. 13.9% alc. Organic certified. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Mar 2022
