Valli Waitaki Vineyard Pinot Gris 2022, North Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 15-Dec-2022
Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is softly vibrant with penetrating aromas of spiced pear, Granny Smith, cardamom and blossom. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, Grany Smith and spiced pear aromas show depth, enveloping ginger, cardamom, apple blossom and crunchy minerals. The fruit has concentration, lifted and vibrant with excellent tension and line; subtle dusty minerals textured the mouthfeel and lingered to a long, spicy, fragranced, dry, minerally finish. The dry, minerally Pinot Gris possesses a fine line, crunchy fruit and acidity, and a refined floral finish. Match with whitebait and calamari over the next 5+ years. Small bunches (average 75g), handpicked, whole bunch pressed, 61% racked into neutral white barrel, 39% into stainless steel tank, partial MLF, 4.5 months on lees. 13.5% alc, <1g/l RS. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Dec 2022 RRP $34.50
