The Landing Bay of Islands Pinot Gris 2018

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 18-Aug-2018
Bright, even, pale golden-hued straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly concentrated with well-packed aromas of yellow stonefruits along with stonefruit kernels, and subtle notes of fragrant white and yellow florals and savoury honeusuckle. This is clean and fresh in expression. Dryish to taste and light-medium bodied, the palat has a slender but finely concentrated heart of bright and vibrant white and yellow stonefruit flavours, along with subtle notes of florals and honeysuckle. The flavours show clarity and the wine flows softly and smoothly with background acidity lending energy, carrying to a soft, light finish. This is a fresh and elegant dryish Pinot Gris with flavours of stonefruits, florals and honey expressed with clarity and without complication. Serve with most white meat dishes over the next 3 years. Pinot Gris fruit from ‘The Landing’ vineyard, fermented in stainless-steel to 11.5% alc. and 7 g/L RS. 17.5-/20 Aug 2018 RRP $26.99
