Johner Estate Wairarapa Pinot Gris 2015

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 25-Jan-2016
Fruit from the ‘Home’ vineyard in Gladstone and other Wairarapa sites fully fermented in seasoned oak to 13.5% alc. the wine aged 9 months in barrel with 4 months batonnage. Bright straw-yellow colour, pale edged. This has an elegantly presented nose with a tight core of white stonefruits with delicately lifted white florals and nuances of honeysuckle and nutty elements. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, this has a concentrated heart and gently rich flavours of white stonefruits, honeysuckle and nuts. The mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing with fine acidity, and the wine follows a dry, textural thread and line that balances the fruit sweetness. The finish is fresh with light, lush flavours of stonefruits and florals. This is a crisp and dryish Pinot Gris with subtly rich fruitiness and a fine-textured palate. Serve with seafood, poultry and Asian cuisine over the next 3 years. 17.0+/20 Jan 2016 RRP $24.00
