Dunnolly North Canterbury Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 08-Aug-2017
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, very light on the edge. The nose is subtle in expression, but has a good core of fresh white and yellow stonefruits entwined with exotic floral nuances and hints of pears and honeysuckle. This has aromatic fruit clarity. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a tight and firm core of white and yellow stonefruits along with exotic florals, pears, honeysuckle and herbs. The wine has good linearity and flows along a light-textured phenolic line enhanced by balanced, fresh acidity to a dry, light finish. This is a firm and tightly bound, dry Pinot Gris with yellow stonefruit, exotic florals, honey and herb notes carrying along a fine-textured line to a dry finish. Match with Asian cuisine over the next 2-3 years. The second release of a Pinot Gris. Fruit from three sites in North Canterbury, fermented to 13.96% alc. and 4.8 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 17.5/20 Aug 2017 RRP $19.35
