Matahiwi ‘Mt Hector’ Wairarapa Pinot Gris 2018

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 18-Jun-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is very fresh and bright with banana and confectionary-like fermentation esters, revealing white and yellow florals, pears and nuances of tropical fruits. The aromatics form a softly concentrated core. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has restrained flavours of florals and pear fruit along with bubble-gum fermentation esters. The flavours are rounded and along with the soft acidity form a gentle heart. The wine flows softly along a smooth palate line, leading to a light finish. This is a clean, medium-dry, rounded and smooth Pinot Gris with light floral and pear fruit lifted by fermentation esters. Serve with Middle Eastern fare over the next 2 years. Estate fruit fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 9.5 g/L RS. 16.0+/20 Jun 2018 RRP $16.99
