Medium sweet style from NZ's foremost specialists in premium Pinot Gris

Description

Nobody spends more time on premium Pinot Gris than Jim Jerram at Ostler in North Otago, their marginal climate seemingly perfect for this Alsatian grape. The Lakeside Vines is grower vineyard at Lemon Springs, which was renamed Demon Springs by one worker frustrated by its amazingly stony soils. The wine is an amazingly decadent style that bears more than a passing resemblance to the top wines of Hugel in Alsace, its magnificent richness balanced by a perfectly full body. Clearly harvested at high brix and fermented to 14,5% alcohol, the Lakeside Vines is a sensational wine in a medium-sweet style, filled with honeysuckle, peach, poached pear, nutmeg, cinnamon, quince and nashi. A wine that could easily cellar 5 to 8 years, but what's the point when it's so sensational now.
