Misha’s Dress Circle Pinot Gris 2020, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 16-Mar-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is gentle and fragrant, nuances of pear, peach and honey entwined with white floral and a little spice dusting. Medium-full bodied, dry-ish to taste, succulent aroma of pear, peach, and baked apple has a good core, honey, and subtle spice adorn by white floral. The palate is slightly unctuous with a fine-textured powdery phenolic line. Acidity is lively, provide balance and freshness to the underlined alcohol power. This is a succulent Pinot Gris with classic flavours of pear, honey and floral with delicate spices, brightened by refreshing acidity and fine-texture. Match with pork and prawn dumplings and simple Asian fare over the next 4 years. Whole bunch pressed, free-run juice racked and cool-fermented in stainless steel, and pressings portion was fermented slightly warmer in older French hogshead barrels (23% of the blend) with indigenous yeast. 14% alc, 5 g/l RS. 18.5/20 (93 pts) Mar 2021 RRP $30
