Dry River Martinborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 12-Mar-2017
Bright, light straw colour, pale on edge. This has a very firm and tightly concentrated nose showing pear fruit and exotic florals with good depth and intensity. The florals open with breadth revealing a range from white to yellow. Lovely fragrance here. Medium to taste and fullish bodied, the florality is the feature, with rose-petals and exoticism, developing spice notes. This is tightly bound with a concentrated core, not quite unctuous, but certainly rich. The acidity is integrated, and the wine has excellent linearity with some alcoholic power and drive. The wine retains a sense of elegance. Fruit approx. 60% from ‘Dry River Estate’ and 40% from ‘Craighall’, picked without botrytis to 13.5% alc. and 14 g/L RS. 19.0/20 Mar 2017 RRP $55.00
