Maui Waipara Pinot Gris 2011

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 26-Sep-2011
100% Pinot Gris from the ‘Waiata' vineyard, Waipara, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 6.1 g/L rs. Pale straw-yellow colour with a pale edge, this has an elegant and attractively intense nose of fresh pears with light spice notes, along with aromas of stonefruits, lifted with fresh youthful esters. Medium-dry and full-bodied, this has soft, open flavours of spiced pear fruits with some power and depth, balanced by fresh acidity. Full-flavoured through the mid-palate, the wine has a moderately sustained and subtly stonefruit nuanced finish. Serve with Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3-4 years. 17.5/20 Sep 2011 RRP $17.95
