FIELDING PINOT GRIS 2011

I tasted this one at the winery. Pale in color with a light nose of minerality. On the mid pallet the wine displays some lovely minerality to match the nose some mild peach and some lime. The wine is medium in length that builds nicely in the mouth. I’m not normally a pinot gris lover but this is a pretty good one with some nice complexity. I would give 88-89.

Tasting Note
Complex, structured and brimming with finesse and charm, this is balanced, food friendly and lip-smacking good. It’s slightly bronze/pink hued and nicely perfumed with sexy aromas of honeysuckle, musky spice and honeydew melon. Fully flavoured and textured, nicely balanced and silky smooth, a persistent wash of soft tropical fruit flavours, key lime and grapefruit pith ends crisp, tangy and refreshing. Score – 4 1/2 Stars (out of 5). (Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, April 28, 2012)
