Oak Estate Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 15-Nov-2017
Bright, even straw-yellow colour, a little paler on the rim. The nose is fresh with firm and well-concentrated aromas of white and yellow stonefruits along with exotic florals, some honeysuckle, and lifted fermentation esters. The aromatics form a fine core with good depth. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a moderately concentrated core of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with soft exotic floral notes, hints of honeysuckle and esters lift. The mouthfeel is lively and vigorous from fresh acidity, and the flavours flow with energy and drive along a fine-textured line, leading to an aromatic finish. This is a moderately concentrated dryish Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral, honeysuckle and esters on a bright and zesty palate with good linearity. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3+ years. Fruit from Crownthorpe and Havelock Hills, cool-fermented in stainless-steel, with approx. 10% in oak to 12.5% alc. and 9 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 17.5/20 Nov 2017 RRP $23.00
