Ostler Audrey’s Pinot Gris 2020, Waitaki Valley

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 27-Jul-2021
Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is elegant and soft, crunchy minerals, pear, yellow stonefruit intermix wildflower and honey. Medium-bodied, Nashi pear and nectarines have a pure expression, interweave lemon sherbet, lemon zest, unfolding white floral and honey nuances. A subtle sweetness nicely balances acidity, lingers with zesty freshness and adds interest. Oily texture mouthfeel adorned by a very fine powdery, chalky line, carry the wine to linearity. This is an elegant Pinot Gris with purity, posied details and mineral seduction. Match with pork belly bao buns and pan-fried fish over the next 6 years. Fruit is from Clos Ostler vineyard, handpicked, whole bunch pressed to tank for cold settling for 2 days, racked to tank and barrel for fermentation with selected yeast. 13.8% alc, 3.8 g/l RS. 19/20 pts (95 pts) July 2021 $35
