Wild River Waipara Valley Dry Pinot Gris 2011

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 02-Aug-2012
Fruit from sandy gravel soils, fermented to 14.0% alc. and 5 g/L rs. Bright straw-yellow colour, pale on edge. This has a light bouquet of pears and white stoneftruits with subtle notes of honey, unfolding nuances of flinty lees work. Dryish to taste, mineral-infused stonefruit flavours are enhanced by attractive exotic spice hints which form an interesting amalgam with flinty, minerally lees characters. The acidity is soft and a light textural thread carries the palate to a dry, nuanced finish. This dry, light Pinot Gris has subtle layers of flint and exotic spices. Match with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influenced cuisine over the next 2-3 years. 16.5+/20 Aug 2012 RRP $14.99
