Main Divide Pinot Gris 2019, North Canterbury

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 09-Feb-2021
Bright, pale yellow with a green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full and youthful, nuances of pear, stonefruit melded with an amalgam of spices, underlying a hint of flint. Medium-full bodied, off-dry to taste, ripe pear nuances, nectarines and tangerines interweave honey and five-spice. The mouthfeel is rounded and slightly oily with a soft-textured phenolic line. Lively acidity balance with the sweetness emphasized the honey note and contributed to a rich palate. Match with dim sum and Vietnamese spicy pork mince over the next 3 years. Fermented in stainless steel to 13.5% alc, 15 g/l RS, aged for a short period on lees. 17.5+/20 pts (89 pts) Feb 2021 RRP $20.99
