Ostler Lakeside Pinot Gris 2012
Vibrant, fresh yellow stonefruit aromas with apricots, spiced pears, and honey intermingle with layers of flint and minerals, the concentrated bouquet wonderfully lifted with exotic and complex elements.
Off-dry, this is a rich and concentrated wine that unfolds interwoven flavors of spicy yellow stonefruits, honey, flint, and earth. The palate combines lusciousness with finesse, and carries an excellent, driven line with tension and energy that carries through to a very sustained, lingering racy, spicy finish. This is a powerfully concentrated and complex Pinot Gris that retains great stylishness.
From Paul Sinnott's spectacular vineyard, above lake Waitaki, from an Alsace gris clone, new to New Zealand - Aromatically, there is ripe stone fruit, nectarine, peach and spice. Balance, pinot gris in the Alsace style - rich and creamy with extended palatal length. This is a luscious and satisfying gris.
