Misha’s Vineyard Dress Circle Pinot Gris 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 06-Sep-2022
Bright, pale straw yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is gently full, growing in depth, displaying aromas of quince and pear, melded with honeysuckle and five spice. Medium-full bodied, dry to taste, collected aromas of quince, pear, and a suggestion of toffee apple entwined with honeysuckle, ginger and cinnamon. Opulent fruit shows depth and power with richness and spice. The mouthfeel is refined, textural and unctuous. This powerful and rich Pinot Gris shows concentrated fruit adorned with spice, and an unctuous palate lends a dry, long finish. Match with roasted quail and parsnip puree over the next 6 years. Fruit from Bendigo, gently whole bunch pressed, free run juice racked clear to stainless steel tank, inoculated and fermented cool; the pressings portion with some free run juice (27%) fermented in older French oak hogshead barrels with indigenous yeast. 14%, 4.5 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 (94 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $32
