Neudorf Pinot Gris 2018 New Zealand Nelson
The nose is soft and elegant in expression unfolding layers of detail with white and yellow stonefruits, pears, hints of honeysuckle, nuances of exotic florals and subtle flinty, minerally and nutty notes. This has finesse and piquancy and grows in depth and concentration with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a very refined, concentrated, but rounded core with flavours of white stonefruits along with an amalgam of pears, white florals and subtle, flinty, mineral and nutty detail. The fruit has vitality and is enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity, and the wine flows with excellent energy along a soft-textured line, leading to a taut, lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, refined, but intense off-dry Pinot Gris with vibrant, detailed flavours of stonefruits, pears, florals and minerals on a lively palate.
