Earth’s End Central Otago Pinot Gris 2011

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 22-May-2013
100% Pinot Gris from Mount Edward's ‘L'Attitude' vineyard source in Lowburn, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 14.0% alc. and 7 g/L rs. Bright pale straw colour with some green hues and a light rim. This has a soft, deep nose of ripe yellow stonefruit with notes of herbs, minerals and flinty reduction. Off-dry and quite succulently sweet with its fruit richness, this has a ripe and appealing honeysuckle note combining with tropical fruit elements, forming a palate with good weight and concentration. The textures are soft, but the acidity provides freshness and vitality. As well as a moderately sustained finish showing delicate lush nuances. This will be a good match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 2-3+ years. 17.5/20 Oct 2011 RRP $22.50
