Wild Earth Central Otago Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 16-Oct-2018
Bright, even straw-yellow colour and slight green hues, with some depth, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full, open and accessible with aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits along with an amalgam of pears and honeysuckle, and a fine thread of nuts and minerals. This is attractively approachable. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is gently full with mouthfilling flavours of ripe white and yellow stonefruits, along with pears and florals. Subtle notes of nuts and minerals show and the palate builds in weight and presence, whilst retaining fresh, crisp acidity. The wine carries to a zesty, bright, aromatic finish. This is a gently mouthfilling dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral and pear flavours with notes of nuts and hints of minerals on a palate with weight and fresh acid zestiness. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3+ years. A blend of three different ferments, the fruit from Gibbston with 15 y.o. vines and 15% from Pisa. The Gibbston fruit with two cool, tank ferments, one foot-stomped fruit, the other WBP, and the Pisa component fermented in seasoned oak, to 13.5% alc. and 1.52 g/L RS, the tank fermented wine aged 3 months on lees. 17.5+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $30.00
