Man O’ War ‘Exiled’ Waiheke and Ponui Islands Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 24-May-2018
Bright, light golden-hued straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is a little restrained in expression, but unfolds gentle voluminous aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits melded with a little honey and musk, building to form a moderately concentrated, rounded core, unveiling subtle nutty notes. Medium in sweetness and medium-bodied, the palate has a moderately rich and luscious heart with flavours of yellow stonefruits along with exotic florals, honey and musk. The mouthfeel exudes a degree of unctuousness and is balanced by fresh, lacy acidity. The flavours show good presence and carry softly to a gentle finish. This is a moderately luscious medium Pinot Gris with yellow stonefruit, floral and honied flavours with some unctuousness and richness. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3+ years. Fruit from Ponui Island and Waiheke Island fermented with light solids in tank to 12.5% alc. and 21 g/L RS. 17.5+/20 May 2018 RRP $34.90
