Spencer Hill ‘Latitude 41’ ‘Hill Block’ Nelson Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 03-Jul-2018
Bright, very pale straw colour, very light on the rim. The nose is delicate with fresh aromas of white stonefruits and floral elements, along with pear and honeysuckle notes, forming a finely concentrated core. This has purity and clarity. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a fresh, rounded, aromatic heart of white and yellow stonefruits harmoniously entwined with exotic florals, pear and honeysuckle. The palate has good presence and mouthfeel with soft textures and fresh, lacy acidity. The wine has good linearity and carries to a lingering, elegantly concentrated finish. This is an elegant, aromatic, dry Pinot Gris with a harmonious palate of stonefruits, florals, pears and honeysuckle with good freshness and body. Serve with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 3 years. Fruit from the Moutere ‘Home’ block, fermented in tank with 8% in oak contact to 12.5% alc. and 6.5 g/L RS, the wine aged one month on lees with batonnage, the oak component in wood for 6 months. 17.0+/20 Jul 2018 RRP $18.99
