Goose Bay South Island Pinot Grigio 2018

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 03-Jul-2018
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is up-front with fresh and intense aromas of exotic florals and white and yellow stonefruits, along with lifted confectionary-like fresh fermentation esters and pears. This has good depth and penetration. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is soft and rounded with a gentle core of fragrant white and yellow stonefruits entwined with exotic florals, pears and confectionary-like fresh fermentation esters. The flavours are up-front and show good aromatic presence with some richness and lusciousness. The wine carries along a soft, smooth line with gentle acidity leading to an aromatic finish. This is a soft and rounded dry Pinot Gris with up-front stonefruit, floral and pear flavours along with fresh fermentation esters on a smooth palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3 years. Fruit from Moutere, Nelson, tank-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 4 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees and 5% given French oak contact. 17.0+/20 Jul 2018 RRP $19.99
