Kahurangi Estate Nelson Pinot Gris 2016

Vintage

Variety

Region

Colour

Sparkling rose gold in the glass

Aroma

Bright, punchy pear and quince aromas with a hint of floral citrus and lashings of river stone-like minerality

Taste & Other Notes

Medium to full palate weight with flavours that have focussed spice characters on the palate to compliment the pear and ripe red apple notes. Incredibly long finish with nice juicy acidity that turn it into a delicious wine. The lower alcohol in most 2016 wines from the Nelson region means wines like this rely on ripe fruit and flavour rather than oily alcohol texture.
