Hills & Rivers Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 15-May-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues and some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with subtly fragrant aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, along with floral nuances and suggestions of honeysuckle and nutty lees elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has fresh, bright flavours of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with subtle floral notes and hint of honeysuckle and nuts. The palate has light, grainy phenolic textures and is enlivened by brisk acidity. The wine caries with good energy and grip to a dry, floral finish. This is a fresh, bright, stonefruited dry Pinot Gris with some grip and brisk acidity. Serve with most white meat dishes over the next 2+ years. Fruit from Maraekakaho, fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 7 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months on lees with batonnage. 16.5/20 May 2017 RRP $16.00
