Fifth Bridge Central Otago Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 14-Nov-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with a little pale gold, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and tightly bound, and quite elegant in proportion with finely concentrated aromas of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with subtle nutty notes and minerals, revealing a little floral lift. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is fresh, bright and lively with a taut core of white and yellow stonefruits along with florals and hints of honey and minerals. The fruit flows along a light textured line with balanced acidity, carrying to a light, clean floral nuanced finish. This is a taut, medium-dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral, honey and mineral flavours on a light-textured palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3 years. 100% Pinot Gris from the Cromwell Basin, cool-fermented in tank to 13.5% alc. and 10.3 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Nov 2018 RRP $21.95 Bright straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh with full aromas of white and yellow stonefruits along with notes of pears and exotic florals, unfolding nuances of lifted fermentation esters and chalky mineral elements. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a moderately deep and rounded heart with flavours of yellow stonefruits, pears and honeysuckle, and floral elements. The fruit is up-front and the palate has good presence, with fine textures and balanced, refreshing acidity. The wine carries positively to a light finish. This is an up-front medium-dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, pear, floral and honied flavours with good palate presence. Match with Middle Eastern fare over the next 2-3 years. Pisa fruit fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 9.81 g/L RS. 17.0+/20 Mar 2018 RRP $21.95
