Allan Scott Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Aug-2016
Bright straw-yellow colour with a definite blush, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is rounded with well-concentrated aromas of lifted yellow stonefruits, honeysuckle and exotic florals with elements of fresh fermentation esters and a suggestion of savoury nuts at the core. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features moderately rich and luscious, up-front flavours of yellow stonefruits and honeysuckle, along with lifted exotic florals and fermentation esters. Some savoury, nutty detail adds interest. The mouthfeel is soft and rounded with unctuous hints, and the wine flows smoothly and harmoniously to a dryish, savoury honied finish. This is an up-front, moderately rich, medium-dry Pinot Gris with aromatic and lifted fruit and a mellow mouthfeel. Match with Asian cuisine over the next 3 years. Fruit primarily from the ‘Wallops’ and ‘Moorlands’ sites given 2 days skin contact and fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 12.2 g/L RS. 17.5/20 Aug 2016 RRP $18.00
