Matawhero Single Vineyard Gisborne Pinot Gris 2020 750ml

91 POINTS/4.5 STARS – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

After another good growing season in Gisborne, the Pinot Gris grapes exhibited wonderful intense flavours and good aromatics. Once at optimal ripeness, the grapes for this wine were harvested in the cool of the morning and quickly transported to the winery for speedy processing. After gentle pressing, the juice was kept cool and clarified slightly. Fermentation was carried out using cool temperatures as well, with a yeast perfectly suited to expressing the best characteristics of Pinot Gris. This vibrant wine needed only the smallest adjustment prior to filtration to fully express the ripe flavours and aromas which has developed during the season.
