Wild Earth Pinot Gris 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 21-Dec-2021
Bright, even, pale straw yellow. The nose is bright with soft aromas of pear drop, yellow apple and lychee, along with a whiff of ginger and citrus blossom. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, refreshing nuances of pear, apple, lychee interweave citrus, ginger lingers with citrus floral. The fruit is ripe and rounded, supported by a crisp, juicy acid line. A slightly oily mouthfeel carries fine-textured phenolics, spice and crunch to a clean, refreshing finish. This is a refreshing Pinot Girs with crisp acidity, ripe and concentrated fruit on a textural palate. Match with chicken & pork satay and salt & pepper calamari over the next 3 years. Fruit from established vineyards in Lowburn (48%), Bendigo(21%), Gibbston (16%) and Queensbury(15%). Fermented in neutral oak barrels (64%) and stainless steel (36%) to 14% alc, 3.7 g/l RS. No fining. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Dec 2021 RRP $30
