Maude Central Otago Pinot Gris 2015

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 27-Sep-2015
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on rim. The nose is fresh and perfumed with aromas of exotic white and yellow florals, pear fruit, honeysuckle and youthful, lifted fermentation esters. The aromatics are fine in concentration and build in depth in the glass. Dry to taste, elegantly concentrated and aromatic fruit flavours of pears and honeysuckle are lifted by exotic florals and fermentation esters. The mouthfeel is bright and lively from soft, lacy acidity, and the palate exudes vitality and freshness. The wine flows smoothly, following a fine-textured line, leading to a long, tightly bound, mouth-wateringly dry, aromatic finish. This is an elegant, concentrated dry Pinot Gris with vibrant and aromatic fruit. Match with fine Asian fare over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Mt Maude’ vineyard along with that from Maori Point Road, Lowburn and Gibbston Valley, 60% fermented in stainless-steel and 40% in seasoned barriques to 13.0% alc. and 5.2 g/L RS. 3,600 dozen made. 18.0-/20 Sep 2015 RRP $24.00
