Whitehaven Pinot Gris 2021, Marlborough

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Feb-2022
Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The wine is soft, penetrating oyster shell minerals and spice on the entrance, unfolding subtle floral, citrus and tree fruit. Medium-full bodied, dry to taste, a good weight cushioning the palate with aromas of pear, apple, apricot, white floral, interweave honey, talcum spice and grapefruit peels on the finish. The wine has a good concentration of flavour and body, supported by balanced acidity, and spice left a numbing sensation on an oily lingering. This is an elegant dry Pinot Gris with concentrated fruit and spice, balanced acidity and a smooth mouthfeel. Match with gyoza and chicken ballotine over the next 3 years. Fermented to 14% alc, 2.9 g/l RS. Vegan friendly. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Feb 2022 RRP $23
