Lamont Bendigo Central Otago Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand – Otago
Review Date - 12-Jul-2018

18.5/20

Bright, light golden-yellow colour with a suggestion of blush and some depth, lighter edged. The nose is fresh and full with well-packed aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits entwined with exotic florals along with an amalgam of pear fruit and some fresh fermentation esters. The aromatics show good depth and grows in volume with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and succulent fruit flavours of yellow stonefruits and pears, with exotic frloral fragrances, some honeysuckle and a little esters lift. The palate is lively with good fruit weight and presence, and soft, lacy acidity balancing the near unctuousness and alcoholic power. The flavours carry to a long, aromatic finish. This is a rich fruited dry Pinot Gris with good weight and flavours of stonefruits, florals, pears and honeysuckle. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones Sel Ovaille and 2/15, from Bendigo, WBP and cool-fermented in stainless-steel with 10% in seasoned oak to 13.8% alc. and 3 g/L RS. Certified organic fruit. 450 cases made. 18.5/20 Jul 2018 RRP $27.00
