Q Wine Pinot Gris 2020, Waitaki Valley

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 24-Aug-2020
Bright, even, light yellow with some depth and a slightly lime hue. The bouquet is gently full with aromas of sweet pear, quince, white blossoms and a hint of spice. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, pears, quinces, apricots have a good core of concentrate, melded with white flowers and a touch of five-spice. The wine is fresh and bright with excellent depth of flavour intensity, showing the varietal characters as well as the Waitaki Valley terroir. The acidity is taut and focused carries the flavours thorough the palate with grace, along with crunchy minerals and a light phenolic grip to lengthy linearity. This is a dry Pinot Gris with aromas of pear and stonefruit, along with subtleties of white blossoms, five-spice and minerals and an excellent acid drive. 100% whole-bunch pressed, fermented to 14% alc, 2 g/l RS. 10% fermented on French oak, aged for 3 months. 450 cases produced. 18.5+/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $30
