Pinot Gris 2013

The tasting notes

Pinot Gris - Click to purchase

Central Otago's Domain Road Vineyard, near Bannockburn, is sited in a sheltered valley which provides a unique micro-climate, ideal for producing premium wines.

The Wine

Our Pinot Gris has been de-stemmed and crushed before being pressed.  The juice is fermented (8% in French oak) to retain a hint of sweetness in an off dry style.

Melon, pear and quince on the nose, with a hint of floral and spice. The sweet taste of pear, stone-fruit and melon come through on the palate. This medium bodied wine has a good texture and fine balance.

Enjoy with Asian cuisine, seafood, white meats, salad dishes or as an aperitif.

Review, Raymond Chan. 4 Stars

Central Otago is having its fair share of success with Pinot Gris, as the Domain Road Pinot Gris 2013 (18.0+/20) shows. Off-dry to taste, delicate flavour of stonefruits and lifted honeysuckle feature on the palate.  The wine grows in weight and a fine-textural presence carries the gently rich and luscious fruit. This is an elegant, lively and gently luscious Pinot Gris, with a refreshing, crisp finish.
