Porters Martinborough Pinot Gris 2012

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 01-Nov-2012
Bright, pale straw colour with slight green hues. The bouquet is soft and gently full with aromas of pears and white stonefruits lifted with florals and nuances of honeysuckle, revealing flinty and minerally detail. Medium-bodied and dryish to taste, soft textures and a smooth mouthfeel feature on the palate, allowing the subtle flavours of stonefruit and honeysuckle to flow seamlessly. This is well-balanced and harmonious, with discreet acidity and an underlying alcohol drive and line that leads to a light-fruited, dry finish. This is a dryish, soft-textured and harmonious Pinot Gris with gentle pear and stonefruit flavours. Serve with Asian cuisine over the next 3-4 years. Pinot Gris fruit hand-picked, WBP and fermented to 13.5% alc. and 6 g/L rs, the wine undergoing batonnage. 17.5/20 Nov 2012 RRP $25.00
