Mt Beautiful North Canterbury Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 16-Oct-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden-green hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is elegant in proportion with well-packed aromas of white and yellow stonefruits and subtle white floral notes, hints of pears and nuances of mouthwatering minerals. The aromatics are slender, but show very good penetration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a firm and up-front, solidly concentrated heart of white and yellow stonefruits along with a layering of pears, white and yellow florals and honeysuckle. This has a positive core and the wine flows with good power and drive along a positively fine phenolic line with some underlying alcohol energy. The flavours carry to a dry, long, lingering solid finish of stonefruits, florals, pears and honey. A little shy on nose, this is a solidly packed dry Pinot Gris with stonefruits, pears, florals and good power. Match with Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked and hand-sorted fruit, fermented with some solids in stainless-steel to 14.0% alc. and 3 g/L RS. 17.5+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $24.00
