Te Awanga Estate Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 09-Sep-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and tightly bound with good intensity of white stonefruit and white floral aromas, and a soft amalgam nutty notes, honeysuckle and saline. The aromatics grow in intensity with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a fine, concentrated core of white stonefruits and white florals, with hints of honeysuckle and nuts. The wine has a positive linearity and flow along a fine-textured phenolic line with fresh, underlying acidity, and the flavours carry to a refreshing, clean, crisp, dry finish of stonefruits and florals. This is a fresh, crisp, dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit and floral flavours, good linearity and fine, dry textures. Match with most white meat dishes over the next 3 years. Fruit from an inland site, cool-fermented in tank, with 25% in seasoned barriques to 13.0% alc. and 2.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 4 months on lees. 17.5-/20 Sep 2017 RRP $21.99
