Turanga Creek ‘Down to Earth’ Auckland Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 06-Oct-2015
Hand-picked organic fruit from the Whitford vineyard, WBP and fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and <1 g/L RS, the wine undergoing batonnage. Bright pale straw-yellow colour with slight golden hues, very pale on rim. The nose is tight with fresh and chalky white and yellow stonefruit aromas along with subtle white florals and a suggestion of steely, savoury minerals. This unfolds nutty nuances and is light and fresh in the Pinot Grigio style. Dry to taste and medium to medium-full bodied, the palate features a positive core of savoury white and yellow stonefruits entwined with nutty and mineral elements. The fruit has depth and linear flow, guided by a fine phenolic line that lends some palate grip and dryness. The wine flows to a dry, mouthwatering and firm finish. This is a firm, dry, Pinot Grigio style with a firm stonefruited line. Serve with seafood and antipasto over the next 2 years. 16.5+/20 Oct 2015 RRP $20.00
