Matahiwi Wairarapa Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 16-Jun-2017
Bright, light golden-hued yellow colour with a slight blush and some depth, lighter on the edge. The nose is fresh with up-front aromas of yellow stonefruits melded with a layer of savoury florals, with hints of tropical fruits, spices and nutty elements. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses up-front, but light flavours of yellow stonefruits and subtle notes of tropical fruits, spices and nutty nuances. The palate has good weight and presence with fresh acidity and a light, textured line. The flavours recede as they carry to a moderately sustained finish. This is a light, accessible, light-fruited medium-dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, tropical fruit and nutty notes on a palate with good presence. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 2 years. A blend of two clones from the company’s vineyard fermented, partially with indigenous yeasts, in tank to 13.5% alc. and 10.6 g/L RS. 16.5/20 Jun 2017 RRP $19.99
