Quartz Reef ‘Bendigo Single Vineyard’ Central Otago Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 30-Sep-2017
Brilliant, even straw-yellow colour with lemon-gold hues. The nose is fresh and fine in expression with a softly concentrated core of white stonefruits, florals and subtle nutty and mineral notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses rich and vibrant flavours of white stonefruits with white florals and nutty elements. The fruit richness is enlivened by light, lacy acidity and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line. The richness blossoms as the wine carries to a full finish with aromatic stonefruit, floral and nutty flavours. This is a dry Pinot Gris with rich and bright flavours of stonefruits, nuts and florals on a fine-textured palate that blossoms on the finish. Serve with poultry and pork over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked fruit, WBP and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.4% alc. and 3 g/L RS, the wine aged 10 months on lees. Certified Demeter biodynamic. 18.0/20 Oct 2017 RRP $32.00
