Linden Estate Esk Valley Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2013

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 04-Dec-2014
Full, even straw-yellow colour with light golden hues. The nose is light with delicate aromas of yellow stonefruits and savoury, earthy stonefruit kernels along with nutty elements in a Pinot Grigio style. Off-dry and medium-bodied, savoury yellow stonefruit flavours combine with nuances of honey and nuts forming a positive, textured core and line. The wine has a sweet and sour expression and an earthiness. The mouthfeel is balanced with fresh, lively acidity which carries to a moderately sustained finish. This is a savoury off-dry Pinot Gris with a fresh, lively palate. Match with antipasto and Mediterranean fare over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the ‘Esk Valley Vines’ vineyard, fermented in tank to 13.0% alc. and 16.1 g/L RS. 16.5/20 Dec 2014 RRP $20.00
