Valli Gibbston Vineyard Pinot Gris 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 19-May-2021
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is soft and has purity, crunchy Nashi pear, green apple interweave white florals, acacia and delicate spice. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, vibrant aromas of green apple, Nashi pear complexed by citrus peels, white florals, followed by acacia, honey and an elegant dusting of five-spice. The wine has freshness and purity of flavours, flows on a refreshing acid drive along subtle, smooth textured phenolic. Honey and acacia scent added richness and linger on the closing. This is a dry, elegant Pinot Gris with crunchy fruit, delicate floral, honey and spice details on a refreshing palate. Match with fried halloumi and chicken satay over the next 4-5 years. Fruit sourced from Gibbston, fermented in stainless steel to 13% alc, 3 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) May 2021 RRP $30
