Palliser Estate Martinborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 08-May-2018
Brilliant light straw-yellow colour with some green hues, pale on rim. The nose is soft and elegant with aromas of yellow stonefruits, exotic florals and honeysuckle, revealing suggestion of minerally lees with aeration. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has fresh nd gently luscious flavours of yellow stonefruits and honeysuckle along with nuances of exotic florals. Rounded in the mouth, this has a good core underlined by subtle phenolic textures. The acidity is ripe and integrated, enhancing the smooth flow, and the wine carries to a gently honied finish. This is a softly fresh, off-dry Pinot Gris with luscious stonefruit, honeysuckle and floral flavours on a gently textured, smooth-flowing palate. Match with Asian cuisine over the next 3+ years. 70% Berry Smith clone fruit from the ‘Om Santi’ vineyard and 30% clone 2-15 from the ‘East Base’ vineyard, tank-fermented to 13.3% alc. and 6.8 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 17.5/20 Jan 2017 RRP $28.50
