Ostler Audrey’s Waitaki Valley North Otago Pinot Gris 2019

This classy, still youthful wine was estate-grown in the Clos Ostler vineyard and partly barrel-fermented. Bright, light lemon/green, it is richly scented, mouthfilling and fleshy, with concentrated stone-fruit flavours, gentle citrusy and spicy notes, a slightly oily texture and a dry (2.1 grams/litre of residual sugar), very harmonious finish. Already delicious, it’s a drink now or cellaring proposition.
