Kumeu River Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 06-Feb-2018
Full straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, pale edged. This has an elegantly proportioned nose with softly presented but fresh fruit aromas of white and yellow stonefruits along with piquant yellow florals entwined with nutty and honied elements, and hints of minerals. The aromatics build in intensity with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is harmoniously presented with gently layered ripe, white and yellow stonefruits entwined with yellow florals and honied nuances. The mouthfeel is rich with a soft unctuousness balanced by light, lacy acidity and fine phenolic textures. The wine flows smoothly to a soft and sustained, light-nuanced finish. This is a harmoniously layered, gently rich, dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral and honied flavours on a balanced, fresh mouthfeel. Match with Asian fare over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked Kumeu fruit indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc. and 5.9 g/L RS. 18.0+/20 Feb 2018 RRP $27.00
