Moy Hall Martinborough Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 17-Dec-2018
Bright, even, pale straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is light with fragrant aromas of white stonefruits and subtle white florals with hints of minerals and nutty suggestions. The aromatics build to show some depth and concentration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the flavours are somewhat shy in expression showing white stonefruits, florals, a little honeysuckle and nutty hints. The flavours form a tight core, and the wine flows along light, phenolic-textured palate with integrated, fresh acidity, leading to a light, nuanced finish. This is a dry Pinot Gris with restrained flavours of white stonefruits along with subtle floral, honeysuckle and nutty notes on a tight core and light-textured palate. Serve with seafood and most white meat courses over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit from 12 y.o. vines, 70% fermented in tank and aged 3 months on lees, 30% fermented in seasoned oak and aged 6 months on gross lees with some batonnage, the wine at 13.92% alc. and 3.68 g/L RS. 2166 bottles made. 16.5+/20 Dec 2018 RRP $28.00
