Urlar Gladstone Pinot Gris 2012

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 12-May-2014
Fruit hand-picked and WBP, fully barrel-fermented in seasoned oak to 13.0% alc. and 1.4 g/L RS, the wine aged 12 months in oak, the wine undergoing batonnage. Full straw-yellow colour with pale gold hues. The nose is full and broad with solid and deep aromas of yellow stonefruits with minerally lees elements and nutty, barrel nuances, unfolding complexing layers of pear and honeysuckle with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, softly concentrated and well-packed flavours of savoury yellow stonefruits are melded with minerals, smoke and nutty elements. The mouthfeel is rounded from the barrel-ferment, with some phenolic textures forming a dry palate line. The palate flows with good drive to a weighty and dry, grainy, lingering finish. This is a medium-bodied, dry Pinot Gris with complex, savoury stonefruit, mineral and nutty funkiness. Serve with poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. Certified BioGro organic. 17.5+/20 May 2014 RRP $29.00
