Neck Of The Woods Pinot Gris 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 16-Nov-2021
Bright, even pale yellow colour with a slight green sheen. The nose is softly fragranced with Nashi pear, citrus melded with delicate floral. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, the wine is elegantly presented with a concentration of Nashi pear, quince and kumquat, interweave balanced, delicate floral and gingery spice lingers. The fruit has a pure, cleansing essence; crisp, lacy acidity carries subtle spice through a refined palate, possesses fine-textured phenolics, displayed in a lightly chalky mouthfeel. This is an elegant, crisp Pinot Gris with crunchy fruit adorned by delicate floral and a sleek flow. Match with dim sum and lemongrass steamed fish over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from Pisa subregion handpicked, whole bunches foot-stomped, pressed and settled overnight, racked to fermented in stainless steel 80%, left on lees for 2 months and neutral barrels 20%, left on lees for 3.5 months. 13% alc, 3.5g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Nov 2021 RRP $28
