Johner Estate Wairarapa Pinot Gris 2012

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 08-Oct-2012
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on edge. The nose is softly full with light white stonefruit and apple aromas with notes of flinty lees work and a little oak spiciness. Dryish to taste, stonefruit flavours are complexed by nutty oak and some flintiness, and form a smooth and rounded palate with a near unctuous mouthfeel. The acidity contributes a slipperiness and the flavours flow to a savoury finish with stonefruits and earth. This is a smooth, near unctuous Pinot Gris with subtle stonefruit and minerally interest. Match with Mediterranean fare over the next 3-4+ years. Wairarapa fruit fermented to 13.5% alc. and 6 g/L rs, the wine aged 3 months on less, 50% in seasoned 330 L oak barrels. 17.5+/20 Oct 2012 RRP $24.00
