Te Mania Nelson Pinot Gris 2012

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 26-Jun-2013
Fullish straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on rim. This has a very clear, focussed and fresh bouquet of white stonefruits and delicate floral aromas, along with honeysuckle and spices. Off-dry to taste, finely concentrated flavours of stonefruits, honeysuckle and minerals form an elegant core and a smooth flowing mouthfeel. The fruit shows some succulence and richness and soft acidity combines with a fine textured line to provide a rounded palate line. A little alcohol warmth and power emerges and carries the flavours to a long, dry finish. This is a clean, subtly rich, dry Pinot Gris with smooth textures. Serve with antipasto and first courses over the next 3+ years. Partial WBP with 5% indigenous yeast fermented in new oak to 14.2% alc. and 7 g/L rs, the wine on lees 5 months with batonnage. Certified BioGro Organic. Vegan wine. 17.0/20 Jun 2013 RRP $21.99
