Rockface Waipara Valley Pinot Gris 2015

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 25-Jul-2016
Full, light golden-hued straw-yellow colour, lighter on the edge. This has a firm and tightly concentrated nose with complex aromas of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with honeysuckle and herbal elements, along with nutty, mealy and flinty notes. Medium-dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features a succulent core of yellow stonefruits and honeysuckle, along with mealy and nutty layers. The mouthfeel is soft, lush and rounded, with the residual sugar providing a sense of unctuousness and richness. As the wine flows, lifted floral and youthful esters emerge and the wine carries to a long, soft finish of stonefruits, honey and nuts. This is a complex flavoured, medium-dry Pinot Gris with rich stonefruit, honeysuckle and nutty flavours, carried by the sweetness. Match with Middle Eastern fare over the next 3 years. Waipara fruit fermented in stainless-steel with a portion in barrel to 13.5% alc. and 15 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Jul 2016 RRP $18.00
