Montana ‘Reserve’ Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 12-Jun-2017
Even straw-yellow colour with pale gold suggestions, lighter edged. The nose is tightly bound with an elegantly concentrated and firm core with aromas of white and yellow stonefruits unfolding suggestions of exotic yellow florals, hints of honeysuckle and nutty elements. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has good weight and presence, with slightly restrained flavours of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with floral and honeysuckle detail. The mouthfeel is rounded with balanced acidity, and the wine is driven somewhat by the alcohol power, leading to a light fruited and nuanced finish. This is a full and weighty off-dry Pinot Gris with light stonefruit, floral and honeysuckle flavours, a rounded palate and some alcohol drive. Serve with Chinese cuisine over the next 2+ years. Hawke’s Bay fruit cool-fermented to 14.5% alc. and 13.7 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 16.5+/20 Jun 2017 RRP $16.99
