Tohu ‘Single Vineyard’ Nelson Pinot Gris 2012

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 13-Dec-2012
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with pale green hues on rim. Very attractive, lifted aromas of white florals, stonefruits, spiced pears and honeysuckle are complexed by flint and minerally nuances on the nose. Dryish to taste, finely proportioned flavours of pears, spices and exotic florals show with a delicate lusciousness. The fruit is enhanced by subtle honey and esters elements, and supported by harmonious acid balance and a little alcohol body and power. The palate is moderately tight and has the depth and concentration to unfold more. The flavours lead to a dry, lingering, detailed finish with stonefruit and minerally notes. This is an elegant Pinot Gris with subtly lusciousness, aromatic fruit and the potential to reveal more over the next 3-4+ years. Match with tapas, antipasto and with white meat dishes. Fruit from the ‘Whenua Matua' vineyard in Upper Moutere, WBP and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 14.0% alc. and 6.5 g/L rs, the wine undergoing batonnage. 18.0/20 Dec 2012 RRP $21.95
