Main Divide Waipara Valley Pinot Gris 2015

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 12-Jun-2017
Full, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, paler edged. The nose is full with rich and ripe aromas of tropical fruits and stonefruits entwined with citrus notes, marmalade, honey and musk, and subtle herb elements. This has real depth, density, concentration and presence. Medium-dty to tste and medium-full bodied, the palate has rich, near unctuous flavours of ripe stonefruit and tropical fruit, with citrus fruit elements, melded with honey, hints of marmalade and musk. The flavours are rich, lively and mouthfilling, and the palate has a soft-textured, mellow line and gentle acid drive. The wine carries to a dryish, elegant finish of stonefruits, honey and musk. This is a rich, mouthfilling, medium-dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit and citrus flavours, marmalade honey and musk from botrytis influence, on a soft palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3+ years. Waipara Valley fruit with 20% botrytis infection tank-fermented with 15% in barrel to 13.5% alc. and 8.7 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 17.5/20 Jun 2017 RRP $20.99
