Rockburn Pinot Gris 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 13-May-2022
Bright, pale yellow with depth, even colour throughout. The nose is gently-full, with soft aromas of ripe Peckham pear, yellow nectarine, white floral, honey and spice. Medium-bodied, dry-ish to taste, succulent aromas of Peckham pear, nectarine entwined with ginger, white pepper and a honied note; salivating acidity provides a crisp balance to the sweetness, led a juicy finish. A slightly oily mouthfeel reflects minerals and fine-textured phenolics. This crisp, dry-ish Pinot Gris possesses lush fruit and spice with a refreshing, moreish finish. Match with spicy fishcakes and chilli pork over the next 3-5 years. Fruit from Gibbston Back Road Vineyard, handpicked, fermented to 12.5% alc, 6 g/l RS in stainless steel and barrel. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) May 2022 RRP $27
