Spade Oak ‘Voysey’ Gisborne Pinot Gris 2013

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 19-Mar-2014
Bright, light golden-yellow with a suggestion of blush, pale on edge. The nose is light and fresh with steely, minerally infused yellow stonefruit aromas, lifted by hints of honeysuckle and esters. Medium-dry to taste, soft and lush, gently sweet flavours of ripe stonefruits, apricots, pears and honeysuckle form a rounded mouthfeel with attractive lusciousness. The acidity is soft and the mouthfeel smooth and mellow. This has a degree of unctuousness with the flavours carried by the sweetness to a gentle, honied finish. Though quite steely on bouquet, this medium Pinot Gris has a smooth and rich mouthfeel. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3+ years. 39% ‘M2’ Grigio clone and 33% 2/15 from Alsace, 21% Barrie, the remainder clone457, from the ‘Leaderbrand’ vineyards, fermented to 13.1% alc. and 18.5 g/L RS, 25% of the wine in large oak cuves, with 4 months on lees and 75% MLF. 17.5-/20 Mar 2014 RRP $19.95 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
