Elephant Hill Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 08-Jun-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour. The nose is softly presented with fresh aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, along with notes of pears, and nutty, flinty lees detail adding interest. The aromatics are harmoniously melded, and unveils a little honeysuckle with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is fresh and vibrant with lively flavours of white and yellow stonefruits, hints of pear and honeysuckle, lifted florals and a subtle layering of nutty and flinty lees. The fruit forms a tightly bound core and the mouthfeel is enlivened by fresh, zesty acidity. The wine flows along a very fine-featured line, unfolding aromatics as it carries to a lingering, refreshing finish. This is a taut, crisply refreshing dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, pear, honeysuckle and florals, along with subtle lees detail. Serve with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese fare over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the Te Awanga vineyard, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and approx. 3 g/L RS, the wine undergoing batonnage. 18.0+/20 Jun 2018 RRP $28.00
