Woollaston ‘Mahana’ Nelson Pinot Gris 2010

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 27-Feb-2012
Made from fruit undergoing organic conversion, from a south-west facing block on the ‘Mahana' vineyard, Upper Moutere, hand-picked and WBP, indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc. and 7 g/L rs in seasoned puncheons, the wine aged on lees 8 months with batonnage. Bright straw-yellow colour with pale green hues, pale on rim. The nose is full with fresh, attractively lifted aromas of honied pears and delicate minerally nuances, all with purity and harmony. Dryish to taste, flavours of white stonefruits, pears and honey form a core with good depth and weight. The acidity is restrained and contributes to a degree of unctuousness and oiliness of texture. The palate has drive, and the componentry is well-balanced, and the wine finishes with a subtle lift. This is a subtly flavoured, harmonious Pinot Gris with good body and round textures. Serve with antipasto and with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 2-4 years. 17.5+/20 Feb 2012 RRP $28.00
