Gold Star Work ‘Pinot Gris XIV’ Central Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 20-Jun-2015
Bright, light golden-hued yellow colour, pale on rim. The nose is restrained in expression with delicate white and yellow florals along with savoury citrus and stonefruit notes. Nutty oak and a little savoury honied detail emerge with aeration, the wine growing in vinosity. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a core of delicately presented yellow stonefruit flavours, along with subtle lifted florals and nuances of honey, revealing nutty elements in the glass. This has good weight and presence, with a soft, rounded mouthfeel. The wine flows easily, the fruit sweetness balanced by fine phenolic textures, leading to a clean, light, stonefruited finish. This is a subtly flavoured dry Pinot Gris with good weight, and a soft mouthfeel. Match with poultry and pork over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked fruit, 73% indigenous yeast barrel-fermented and 27% tank fermented to 14.0% alc. and 1.1 g/L RS, the barrel portion aged 10 months on lees. 1,000 bottles made. 16.5/20 Jun 2015 RRP $22.90
