Ostler Lakeside Pinot Gris 2020, Waitaki Valley

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 12-Aug-2021
Bright, pale yellow, slightly lighter edged. The nose is soft and elegantly presented, nuances of Poire Williams, green melon melded with white floral, ginger and a hint of stony mineral. Medium-full bodied, off-dry to taste, pear and apple aromas entwined with ginger and white spice, along with a touch of honey and floral. Stony mineral provides a chalky mouthfeel; spices linger with a bright acid line and balanced sweetness to a lifted, refreshing finish. This is an off-dry Pinot Gris with balanced fruit and acid on a brilliant mineral palate. Match with five-spice pork chops and lemongrass fish over the next 4-6 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, cool-fermented to 14.1% alc, 14.1 g/l RS. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $29.90
