Vidal ‘Reserve’ Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris 2018

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 08-Aug-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on the edge. The nose is elegantly proportioned with fresh aromas of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with exotic florals, and a subtle amalgam of honeysuckle and herbs. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has good weight and presence with restrained flavours of white and yellow stonefruits interwoven with exotic, perfumed florals and hints of honeysuckle. The fruit is upfront and fills the palate, and light, phenolic textures carry the wine with balanced acidity to an elegant finish. This is an up-front dry Pinot Gris with good weight and flavours of stonefruits, florals and honey, on a light-textured palate with an elegant finish. Match with Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine over the next 2-3 years. A blend of 95% Pinot Gris, 4% Gewurztraminer and 1% Albarino, predominantly from the Ohiti Gravels with parcels from Te Awanga and the ‘Joseph Soler’ vineyard, Bridge Pa Triangle, cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 4.5 g/L RS, the wine aged months on lees. 17.5+/20 Aug 2018 RRP $19.99
