Spade Oak ‘Voysey’ Gisborne Pinot Gris 2018

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 08-Jul-2018
Bright, light straw colour with lemon hues at the heart, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with gently concentrated aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits with pears and yellow florals and nuances of honeysuckle. Hints of fresh fermentation esters add to the fragrance and lift. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a rounded, but deep heart with concentrated flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits, pears, florals and honeysuckle. This has good weight and presence and the flavours are mouthfilling. The wine flows along a very fine, phenolic-textured line with lacy acidity lending freshness and tension, and the wine leads to an elegant finish. This is a fresh, aromatic off-dry Pinot Gris with ripe stonefruit, pear, floral and honied notes on a palate with presence and freshness. Serve with a wide range of white meat dishes and with Asian fare over the next 2+ years. A blend of 90.5% M2 clone Pinot Gris from the ‘Ashwood’ estate, 7% Albarino from ‘Spade Oak’ and 2.5% Muscat from the ‘Fletcher’ vineyard, fermented in tank with 30% in seasoned French oak barriques to 13.0% alc. and 9.9 g/L RS. 18.0+/20 Jul 2018 RRP $19.95 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
