Takutai Nelson Pinot Gris 2009

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 12-Apr-2012
Fruit from the ‘Hunter' vineyard on the Waimea Plains, col-fermented in stainless-steel to 14.0% alc. and 6.4 g/L rs. Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues. The nose is softly fresh with exotic floral, ripe pear and stonefruit aromas, along with savoury, secondary nuances of earth and flint. Off-dry to taste, rich and deep flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits fill the palate and flow with smooth textures, enlivened by good acidity. Some secondary nuances emerge, as well as a little alcohol warmth, adding to the generous mouthfeel and length. This is a ripe and broader Pinot Gris with developing flavour interest. Match with Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 2-3 years. 17.5/20 Apr 2012 RRP $12.50
