Misha’s Vineyard ‘Dress Circle’ Central Otago Pinot Gris 2018

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 01-Oct-2018
Full, even, bright straw-yellow colour with lemon green hues. The nose is tight and finely bound with an elegantly concentrated core of white and yellow stonefruits, along with pears and exotic florals, and a subtle amalgam of honeysuckle and nutty elements. The aromatics are a little slender in expression, but show very good intensity. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a soft-textured mouthfeel with gently full flavours of white and yellow stonefruits, pears, exotic florals and honey, with a little spice. The flavours are harmonious and form a fine, rounded core with light, background acidity. The palate has good power and carries softly to a gently full finish of honey and pears. This is a soft-textured, rounded dry Pinot Gris with harmonious flavours of stonefruit, florals, honey and pears. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4 years. Pinot Gris fruit WBP and fermented in tank with approx. 22% in old French oak with indigenous yeasts to 14.0% alc. and 6.9 g/L RS. 674 dozen made. 18.0+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $28.00
