Q Wine Pinot Gris 2021, Waitaki Valley

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 26-Aug-2021
Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is full, with depth, enticing aromas of peach, pear drop, lemon interweave citrus blossoms and ginger powder. Medium-full bodied, dry to taste, concentrated aromas of peach, citrus lead the palate, enriched by young ginger, floral and peach. The palate is smooth-flowing with a lightly oily texture; lively acidity energises the intensity of fruit. This is an expressive Pinot Gris with depth of flavours and a lively drive. Match with whitebait fritters and kingfish crudo over the next 3-4 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented to 14.1% alc, 2 g/l RS, 10% French oak usage, aged 3 months. 440 cases produced. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $30
