Wild Earth Pinot Gris 2022, Central Otago

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 26-Sep-2022
Bright, even, pale straw yellow. The nose is softly full, packed with aromas of Nashi pear, pear drop and quince with a suggestion of honey, blossom and spice. Medium-bodied, dry-ish to taste, aromas of Nashi pear, quince and apple interweave blossom and a fine dusting of five-spice. The fruit is intense and succulent with salivating acidity; powdery phenolics add texture. This Pinot Gris is juicy, mouth-watering and fine-textured. Match with Vietnamese spring rolls and fish curry over the next 3+ years. Fruit from Queensberry 62% and Alexandra 38%, fermented in stainless steel and 42% in neutral barrels to 13.5% alc, 4.9 g/l RS. Unfined, vegan friendly. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $30
