Neudorf Moutere Nelson Pinot Gris 2011

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 30-May-2012
Bright, light golden-hued straw-yellow, lighter on rim. The bouquet is very full, voluminous and layered, revealing aromas of ripe tropical fruits and pears with honey and complexing flinty reduction. This has concentration and density. Off-dry, this is full-bodied with mouthfilling flavours of ripe tropical fruits, pears, marmalade and honey, showing the influence of noble botrytis. The palate is generous with good alcoholic power and drive, and rounded, unctuous textures are balanced by bright, fresh acidity. Flavours of ripe fruits with notes of toffee and caramel merge with honey and exotic spices on a sustained finish. This rich, exotic and unctuous Pinot Gris is complexed by botrytis, and will match rich Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4+ years. Clones 2/15, 7a and Mission fruit with some botrytis, hand-picked from the ‘Home Vineyard' WBP and wild yeast fermented, 15% in old large oak to 14.5% alc. and 6.4 g/L rs. The wine underwent MLF. 460 cases made. 19.0-/20 May 2012 RRP $29.90
