Greystone Organic Pinot Gris 2023, North Canterbury

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 14-Feb-2024
Bright, even, pale straw yellow. This has a lively, lifted bouquet packed with aromas of honeysuckle, apple, poached pear and white spice. Full-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of baked apple and poached pear melded with cardamom, white pepper and honeysuckle. The fruit is fresh with crispness and depth; spice adds power and lengthens the finish. A lightly chalky mouthfeel contrasts with an oiliness and carries a dry, long closing. This Pinto Gris is well-structured with crisp fruit, fresh acidity and a textural line bringing an elegant linearity. Match with pork terrine and monkfish over the next 3-4 years. The fruit was gently pressed, only free-run juice fermented in the tank (96%) and a small portion fermented in neutral oak barrels (4%). Aged on lees for 3 months, 13% alc. Organic certified. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Feb 2024 RRP $32
