Tasting Notes

Bright, light straw-yellow colour with a suggestion of a golden blush at the heart, lighter edged. The nose is firmly bound and tight, somewhat slender in proportion, but showing good depth and intensity of white and yellow stonefruits along with subtle notes of stonefruit kernels, revealing light florals and hints of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has restrained flavours of white and yellow stonefruits, along with subtle notes of florals. The mouthfeel has vinous presence and the wine flows along a slippery line with integrated acidity, the palate unfolding a suggestion of unctuousness. A little phenolic texture emerges, and guides the wine to a light, clean, dry finish. This Hawkes Bay dry Pinot Gris has restrained aromas and flavours that reveals some richness and unctuous textures and a slippery line with some phenolic grip. Match with most white meat dishes over the next 2 years.
