Spade Oak ‘Voysey’ Gisborne Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 24-Feb-2015
Gisborne fruit, 66% M2 Pinot Grigio and 21% 457 Alsace Pinot Gris clones blended with 8% Marsanne, 3% Viognier and 2% Petit Manseng fermented to 13.8% alc. and 13.3 g/L RS, TA 5.89 g/L and pH 3.38, the wine aged 6 months on lees. Moderately deep straw-yellow colour with some blush, lighter on rim. The nose is soft and gentle with good volume of ripe yellow stonefruits, pears and honey, lifted with spice notes and yellow florals, revealing a steely freshness at the core. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, gently rich and luscious flavours of yellow stonefruits and pears form a good core, the flavours unfolding exotic spices and honey elements. The fruit expression has restraint. but is enlivened by fresh acidity, and the wine flows easily along a delicately textured line. The mouthfeel is balanced and harmonious, and the wine carries to a long and sustained, aromatic finish. This is a fresh, gently rich, aromatic, medium-dry Pinot Gris with balance and linearity. Serve with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 2-3+ years. 17.5/20 Feb 2015 RRP $19.95 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
