Greystone Waipara Pinot Gris 2011

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 05-Oct-2011
Fermented to 13.5% alc. and 13.5 g/L rs, a small portion in barrel, given lees contact, this is bright straw-yellow colour with hues of light gold. The bouquet is fulsome with lifted, attractive aromas of ripe pears, spices, tropical fruits and honey, Medium dryish to taste, the palate features soft, weighty and near unctuous textures and flavours of aromatic spiced pears, honey and subtle minerally lees notes. There is a power and drive to the palate, the acidity in the background. Savoury, flinty, fruit flavours mark the long finish. This will match rich poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4+ years.  Oct 2011
