Te Kano Pinot Gris 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Jul-2020
Bright, even, light yellow with a golden hue. The nose is youthful and fresh, with aromas of pear and apple, citrus, melded with white florals, light honey and fine dusty pollen. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, the palate is delicate and elegant with Nashi pear, apple, citrus notes of lemons and grapefruit; enlivened by vibrant white florals, subtle ginger and a light honey tone. The fruit on the palate is just ripe and fresh, pure with lightness; balanced by refreshing acidity. The slightly oily texture flows along smoothly, carries the aromas of white floral, honey and ginger to an elegant finish. This is a gently plush Pinot Gris with juicy and refreshing fruit flavours, combined with delicate florals, ginger and honey on an oily textural palate. Match with chicken with light curry and meaty whitefish over the next 3-4 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed to stainless steel tanks, fermented to 13.5% alc, 6.2 g/l RS. A short period of lees contact. 18.5/20 pts July 2020 RRP $27
