The Elder

The Elder Pinot Gris 2017 Martinborough, Wairarapa

A precise, clean, fruity and varietal bouquet with aromas of green pear and apple, quince and crushed rock minerality. Nicely dry on the palate with a pure fruit expression - lemon , pear, apple, citrus pith and a fresh mineral quality. Plenty of acidity with a gentle phenolic texture adds a layer of complexity and charm. Decent length and finish. One of the few Pinots Gris I taste that needs some cellar time. Best from late 2020 through 2024.
