Domain Road 'Defiance' Pinot Gris 2016 Bannockburn, Central Otago
Ripe and quite fleshy bouquet with juicy, fresh mandarin, lime and lemon then a white spice and mineral layer. On the palate - crisp, fresh, balanced, fruity and dry; flavours of citrus and crunchy fridge cold apple, some jasmine and a hint of white spice. Nice example in a dry style with plenty of acidity and fine textures; great as an aperitif and with white fish sashimi. Drink now and through 2025.
