Nevis Bluff Central Otago Central Otago Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 06-Mar-2018
Full, even straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, pale edged. The nose is rounded with good depth and concentration of yellow stonefruits lifted by floral nuances and melded with subtle waxy lees and nutty suggestions. This has a minerally edge and intensifies in depth with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has an elegantly concentrated heart with intense flavours of white and yellow stonefruits along with savoury waxy and nutty notes of lees and secondary development. The fruit forms a fine line with soft textures and crisp, lacy acidity. The wine carries to a moderately long finish. This is an elegantly concentrated dry Pinot Gris with fine and firm savoury white stonefruit, waxy and nutty flavours with secondary notes on a soft-textured, crisp palate. Serve with poultry and pork over the next 2+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘L’Attitude’ vineyard, WBP and indigenous yeast fermented in tank with 10% in barrel to 13.0% alc. and <1.0 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months on lees with batonnage. 17.0+/20 Mar 2018 RRP $35.00
