Greenhough ‘Hope Vineyard’ Nelson Pinots Blanc 2014

Pinot Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 22-Feb-2016
73% Pinot Blanc and 27% Pinot Gris from the ‘Hope’ vineyard, co-fermented with indigenous yeasts to 14.0% alc. and <3 g/L RS, the wine aged 14 months in seasoned French oak puncheons. Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, pale on the rim. The bouquet is moderately deep with softly concentrated aromas of savoury white and yellow stonefruits, harmoniously melded with gentle layers of nuts, flints and minerals, unfolding nuances of oxidative detail. The aromas are subtle in expression. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of savoury white stonefruits are integrated with subtle layers of nuts, earth and minerals, forming a concentrated core. The fruit is expressed with restraint, and the palate follows a grainy-textured line with some phenolic dryness and grip. Soft acidity enhances the rounded mouthfeel and presence, and the palate leads to a sweet-fruited, textural finish. This is a dry Pinot Blanc with restrained, savoury stonefruit flavours with good mouthfeel and grip. Serve as an aperitif, and with poultry and pork dishes over the next 3+ years. 17.5+/20 Feb 2016 RRP $34.00
