Georges Road ‘’Selection’ Waipara Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 22-Feb-2018
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full and well-concentrated with a deep and rounded heart of yellow stonefruits entwined with honey notes unfolding exotic yellow florals. The aromatics grow in richness with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has deep and mouthfilling flavours of ripe yellow stonefruit, tropical fruits and notes of honey and exotic florals. The palate is rich, near-unctuous and rounded, possessing a degree of savoury opulence, with soft, underlying acidity. The wine carries smoothly to a rich, plush finish. This is a rich, opulent and lush, dry Pinot Gris with ripe stonefruit, tropical fruits, honey and savoury florals, with an unctuous, rounded mouthfeel. Serve with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked fruit, WBP and indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned French oak to 14.0% alc. and 4.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months on lees undergoing batonnage. 450 cases made. 18.5+/20 Feb 2018 RRP $26.00
