2016 Amisfield Pinot Gris

FWDC 93/100

Description

It's hard to be professional and objective about Amisfield wines when you've had the pleasure of eating in their world class restaurant - but this 2016 Pinot Gris is undoubtedly a seriously fine glass of wine. Big, fat and off dry in the Alsatian style, it's spicy and complex with a 30% portion of barrel fermented juice. A real food wine (pork belly anyone?) the Amisfield Pinot Gris 2016 won't be around long...

Smells

Sensationally complex nose showing eastern spices, a hint of cumin, with a big rush of florals, spices and pears.

Tastes

Opulent, oily and seriously concentrated, the mouthfeel and complexity is from the very top drawer, a hint of minerality rounding out and freshening up the long finish. Great in its youth, there's no hurry here and it will drink well through 2021 at least.
