Waimea Estates Nelson Pinot Gris 2011

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 12-Apr-2012
Brilliant, pale straw-yellow colour, pale on rim. This is very tight, fine and elegant on bouquet with white floral and citrus fruits, revealing nuances of tropical fruits with detail and delicacy. Medium-dry, this is beautifully refined with subtle pear, white floral and honey flavours forming an elegant core with excellent concentration. The mouthfeel is very smooth, near seamless, and there is a building generosity and richness, leading to a long finish with real presence. This is a classy, delicate Pinot Gris with the potential to unfold more flavours and develop greater character over the next 3-4+ years. Serve with antipasto, tapas, seafood and poultry. Fruit primarily from the ‘Hope' block on the Waimea Plains fermented to 14.4% alc. and 8.5 g/L rs, the wine given 4 months batonnage. 18.5/20 Apr 2012 RRP $23.00
