Paddy Borthwick Pinot Gris 2020, Wairarapa

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 11-Dec-2020
Bright, straw-golden-yellow with some depth, slightly lighter edged. The nose is well-proportioned with lush aromas of William pear, baked apple; honeysuckles intermix white florals, along with citrus and vanilla spices. Medium-full bodied, the palate is bright with fresh nuances of pear and apple, along with citrus crunch. Lively acidity provides an excellent balance to the body, lighten up the honeysuckles and white floral element; flow with good energy and minerals. The finish is crisp with lifting florals and aromatics. The wine is with precision, vibrant, and fruit-forward yet with subtle details and weight added depth to the palate. This is a fresh and elegant Pinot Gris with flavours of apple and pear, floral and depth with a fresh palate. Match with slightly spice aromatic Asian cuisine over the next 3-5 years. Partial fermented in stainless steel, partial fermented in old French oak barrels, aged on lees for 9 months. 13.4% alc, 5.1 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Dec 2020 RRP $22.95
