Pacific Potion Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 07-Aug-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. The nose is fresh with light aromas of white stonefruits with lifted floral nuances and suggestions of honeysuckle. The aromatics are gentle and soft in volume, but build in intensity and presence with aeration. Medium-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has fresh and intense flavours of white stonefruits, florals and hints of tropical fruits and honeysuckle. The fruit is subtly rich, with fresh, lacy acidity providing balance. The wine flows along a smooth, fine line with good energy, leading to a delicately nuanced, moderately sustained finish. This is a fresh, moderately rich off-dry Pinot Gris with clean stonefruit flavours with notes of florals, tropical fruits and honeysuckle. Serve with mild Asian cuisine over the next 2-3 years. Hand-picked fruit fermented to 11.1% alc. and 8 g/L RS, the wine undergoing 3 months batonnage. Certified BioGro organic. Approx. 4,000 bottles made. 17.5/20 Aug 2017 RRP $25.00
