Urlar Gladstone Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 10-Aug-2016
Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, paler on edge. The nose is very full and densely packed with complex layers of savoury yellow stonefruits and nutty oak and minerally lees elements. The aromatics grow in concentration and intensity with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features fulsome and broad flavours that are solidly presented with considerable depth, showing a complex layering of savoury yellow stonefruits melded with nuts, smoke and minerals. There is richness present, and this is balanced by fine textures lending a light grip. Underlying lacy energy contributes drive and carries the wine to a lingering, complex, savoury finish. This is a full and densely packed, complex layered dry Pinot Gris with savoury stonefruit and nutty flavours. Match with poultry, pork and veal over the next 3-4 years. Fruit WBP and fully barrel-fermented in seasoned French oak to 14.0% alc. and 1.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 12 months in barrel on lees with batonnage and 100% MLF. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0/20 Aug 2016 RRP $30.00
