Neudorf ‘Maggie’s Block’ Nelson Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 20-Nov-2014
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale on rim. The nose is elegant, refreshing and penetrating with white and yellow stonefruits entwined with subtle exotic floral nuances and a mouthwatering minerally note, the aromatics showing detail and intensity. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, fresh, juicy, up-front fruit flavours of white and yellow stonefruits unfold floral and honeysuckle elements. This has refined, flowing textures and linearity. The mouthfeel is beautifully balanced and poised with delicate fruit lusciousness and thirst-quenching lacy acidity. This has excellent energy, and the flavours are carried to a very long, sustained finish. This is a beautifully luscious and refreshing, off-dry Pinot Gris with detailed aromas and flavours. Serve with most white meat courses and mildly spicy Asian cuisine over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked fruit, 67% from the ‘Balquidder’ vineyard on Waimea alluvial gravels and 33% from the ‘Helm’ vineyard on Moutere clay gravels, WBP and 80% stainless-steel fermented with 20% fermented in seasoned puncheons, 27% by indigenous yeasts to 14.0% alc. and 5.4 g/L RS, the wine undergoing partial MLF. 1,150 cases made. 18.5/20 Nov 2014 RRP $26.00
