Neudorf Moutere Nelson Pinot Gris 2010

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 13-May-2011
Brilliant, full, even straw-yellow in colour, this has a full, subtle, layered nose of ripe Nashi pears and yellow stonefruits unfolding complex smoky wild yeast nuances with a touch of oak. This is full-bodied at 13.5% alc. and off-dry at 11.5 g/L rs. The wine is softly textured and open in presentation, showing ripe stonefruit and spiced pear characters which are satisfyingly lush and succulent. There is breadth of flavour and the purity is a feature. The finish is carried by the sweetness a little, but this adds a feel of decadence. Drink with Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine that can be moderately spiced. This will keep 4-5+ years easily. Made from the new 2/15 and 7A clones as well as the older ‘Mission' clone, whole bunch pressed and indigenous yeast fermented, 15% in large oak puncheons. 18.5+/20 May 2011 RRP $29.00
