Paddy Borthwick Wairarapa Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 12-Dec-2017
Bright, pale golden-yellow colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is full with gently concentrated aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, along with nutty notes, hints of fragrant florals and mineral elements. The aromatics form an elegant, firm core. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has gently packed flavours of white and yellow stonefruits with a little honey, and a layering of nuts. The fruit is bright and fresh, and enlivened by crisp, mouthwatering acidity. The flavours are carried by a light, phenolic-textured line to a receding finish of stonefruits. This is a fresh and lively dry Pinot Gris with a softly concentrated heart of stonefruits and nuts, with hints of minerals. Serve with most white meat dishes over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the ‘Borthwick’ vineyard with 15% from the ‘Falloon’ block, fermented in tank with 25% in seasoned oak to 12.8% alc. and 1.9 g/L RS, the barrelled wine aged on lees. 17.5/20 Dec 2017 RRP $24.00
