Mountford Waipara Pinot Gris 2011

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 03-Nov-2012
Made from contract fruit with full botrytis infection, fermented to 9.5% alc. ull, light golden-hued straw-yellow colour with a faint blush. The nose combines power and richness with a steely drive and depth. Restrained aromas of mineral-infused pears show with hints of spices and honey, revealing flinty notes. Medium-sweet to taste, this is soft, lush and rich on palate with ripe yellow stonefruits along with complexing sacoury nuances. Near-unctuous in texture, this is plush and rounded, the sugar carrying the flavours somewhat. There is good energy from underlying acidity which leads the palate to a moderately sustained finish with florals and nutty notes. This is a rich, up-front Pinot Gris in the contemporary late-harvest Alsace style to drink over the next 3-4 years. 18.0-/20 Oct 2012 RRP $28.95
