The Landing Bay of Islands Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 30-Oct-2017
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with a touch of blush, lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full and voluminous with good depth of ripe white and yellow stonefruits along with soft, fragrant florals and honeysuckle. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has rich, up-front flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits and exotic florals, with honied elements. The flavours are mouthfilling and moderately deep, and flow smoothly along a soft-textured line balanced by fresh acidity. The flavours carry to a long, lingering, dry-textural finish showing stonefruits and honey. This is a softly full and moderately deep off-dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral and honied flavours, and a soft, textural palate. Serve with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3+ years. First crop Pinot Gris fruit from ‘The Landing’ vineyard, fermented to 11.5% alc. and 7 g/L RS. 18.0+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $24.00
