Wild Earth Pinot Gris 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 23-Nov-2020
Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is fresh and accessible, aromas of stonefruit, pear, unfolding white lilies and ginger, along with some creamy lees details. Dry to taste, medium-bodied, the palate is fresh, nuances of succulent Nashi pear, apricot rushing in along with a touch of sherbet. A very clean mouthfeel with the purity of fruit enlivened by subtle ginger spices and lily blossoms. Fresh minerals and crunch supported by fresh acidity, flows effortlessly to a refreshing finish. Match with five-spice pork chop and fish cakes over the next 2-4 years. Fruit sourced from Gibbston 75%, Cromwell 25%, fermented and settling in stainless steel 75% and older oak barrels 25% to 13% alc. 18.5/20 pts Nov 2020 RRP $30
