Gibbston Valley ‘La Dulcinee’ Bendigo Central Otago Pinot Gris 2013

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 06-Aug-2014
Clone 2-15, from the ‘La Dulcinee’ vineyard, Bendigo, at 350-370 m.a.s.l., hand-picked, WBP and fermented, 55% in stainless barrel and 45% in old oak to 14.0% alc. and 6.7 g/L RS, the wine aged 10 months on lees. Bright, full, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter edged. This has a very fresh and tightly bound nose of white florals, white stonefruits and pear fruit along with mouthwatering minerally elements, the aromatics building in depth with aeration. Off-dry to taste, soft and gently rich flavours of white stonefruits and pears form a harmonious flowing core. The mouthfeel exudes balance, with fresh, lacy acidity, very fine textures and a little alcohol drive. Still taut, the palate has good linearity, leading to a fine-textured, dry finish. This is a soft, dryish Pinot Gris with fresh stonefruit and pear flavours, and good balance. Serve with Asian fare over the next 4 years. 18.0/20 Aug 2014 RRP $39.00
