Two Sisters ‘Single Vineyard’ Central Otago Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 15-Mar-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter edged. The nose is softly full and gently packed with voluminous aromas of yellow stonefruits harmoniously melded with savoury nutty lees and oak, along with subtle honeysuckle and floral elements. The aromatics form a deep heart and the nose has positive displacement. Very dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has piquant flavours of yellow stonefruits entwined with savoury creamy barrel-ferment, and nutty lees elements, unfolding suggestions of honeysuckle and minerals that add interest. The mouthfeel is softly full, with good weight, the flavours showing some stylish restraint. The wine is rounded in textures with balanced acidity, and carries to a softly driven finish. This is a full, soft and rounded, very dry Pinot Gris with restrained, but definite stonefruit flavours entwined with a nutty lees and oak layering. Match with poultry and pork and gentle cheeses over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the ‘Two Sisters’ vineyard, Lowburn, hand-picked, WBP and indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned oak to 12.5% alc. and approx. 4 g/L RS, the wine aged 4 months on lees. 18.0-/20 Mar 2018 RRP $28.00
