Wild Earth Pinot Gris 2020, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 25-Jun-2021
Bright, even pale yellow. The nose is inviting and gently full, filled with aromas of ripe pear, apple, white florals and creamy lees. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, vivid nuances of ripe pear, lemon and apple melded with subtle white florals, unfolding a layer of spice dustings and lemon curd. The wine is vibrant and bright with fresh fruit and lively acidity; spice dusting added interest. A smooth textural adorned by fine-textured phenolics and creamy lees, drawn to a sustained finish. Match with grilled pork loins and game fish over the next 5+ years. The fruit was sourced from Gibbston (56%) and Lowburn (44%), Gibbston portion fermented in stainless steel tanks, Lowburn portion fermented in old French oak barrels, 14% alc, 4.43 g/l RS. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Jun 2021 RRP $30
