Sileni Estates ‘Seasonal Release’ ‘Sparkling Cuvee’ Pinot Gris NV

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Other
Review Date : 20-Oct-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim, the bead moderately fine and persistent. The nose is fresh with aromatic white and yellow stonefruits along with honeysuckle and light, lifted florals. The nose is soft and voluminous. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a gently packed heart of white and yellow stonefruits with soft pear, honeysuckle and floral notes. The mouthfeel has light phenolic textures providing a little grip, but is balanced by fresh, lacy acidity. The effervescence adds to the freshness as well as some creaminess to the palate. The wine carries to a light, nuanced finish. This is a gentle and harmonious dry sparkling Pinot Gris with stonefruit, pear, floral and honeysuckle notes on a creamy mouthfeel with light, dry textures. Serve as an aperitif, with canapes and antipasto over the next 2+ years. Pinot Gris fruit from a variety of sites, cool-fermented in tank to 11.5% alc. and 6.53 g/L RS, the wine spending a short time in lees and carbonated. 16.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $19.95
