Quartz Reef Pinot Gris 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 30-Jun-2022
Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The bouquet is expressive, leaping out of the glass with aromas of sweet pear, yellow apple and melon suggestions, entwined with rich white floral and spice. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, attractive, fresh aromas of Nashi pear, yellow apple enlivened by five-spice, white blossom and minerals. The fruit has concentration and freshness; lively, juicy acid thread carries the fruit to a long, spiced, dry finish. An irresistible, oily texture provides an opulent mouthfeel, shaped and curved a textural body. This elegant Pinot Gris possesses defined details of fruit, spice and texture and a crisp, lasting finish. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, naturally fermented to 13.5% alc, 1.83 g/l RS, aged on lees for 6 months, underwent MLF. Estate fruit, Organic and Biodynamic certified. 19-/20 pts (95 pts) June 2022 RRP $35
