Spade Oak The Co-Ordinates Ormond Pinot Gris 2020, Gisborne

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Gisborne
Review Date : 11-Jun-2021
Bright, medium straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is voluminous, layered aromas of lifted five-spice intermix ripe Nashi pear, quince, a whiff of white floral, honeysuckles followed. Medium-full bodied, dry-ish to taste, ripe Nashi pear, quince along with lemon and zest melded with five-spice dusting and florals hints. The wine has intense fruit aromas; delicate spices added interest; brilliant acidity brings freshness and drive to the palate, along with fine-textured phenolics that provides a textural flow. This is a refined Pinot Gris with generous fruit, acid freshness and a fine-textured palate. Match with Vietnamese pork spring rolls and lemongrass fish over the next 5 years. Machine picked, destemmed, short cold-soaked, barrel-fermented in neutral French barrels (75%), the balance stop fermented and aged on light lees in 2500 litre oval for 7 months. 13.5% alc, 6 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) June 2021 RRP $28
