Neudorf Moutere Nelson Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 23-Feb-2015
Fruit from the ‘Home’ vineyard WBP and indigenous yeast fermented with 62% in stainless-steel and 38% in neutral puncheons to 14.0% alc. and 8.0 g/L RS, TA 4.7 g/L and pH 3.50, the oak portion aged on gross lees and the wine undergoing partial MLF. Light straw-yellow colour with some depth and the faintest suggestion of blush, lighter on edge. The nose is soft with fresh aromas of white and yellow stonefruits along with notes of pears and nutty apricot kernels and a layer of lemon-curd MLF unfolding, along with piquant flint and mineral nuances. Medium-dry to taste, gently luscious and rich fruit flavours of yellow stonefruits and pears form a soft core. Complexing nuances of nuts, minerals, flint and lemon-curd add detail and interest. The mouthfeel is succulent and harmoniously plush, with lacy acidity balancing the richness. The palate carries to a soft, lingering finish. This is a gently rich, luscious and harmonious off-dry Pinot Gris with layers of stonefruit, and minerally detail along with MLF notes. Serve with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4-5 years. 409 cases made. 18.5/20 Feb 2015 RRP $29.00
