Alpine Valley Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Oct-2016
Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden glints and some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is very tight, light and slender in presentation with aromas of savoury white and yellow stonefruits, along with nuances of nuts and minerals. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is light and elegantly slender in proportion with flavours of white stonefruits, herbs, florals and a suggestion of honeysuckle. The mouthfeel is soft-textured, rounded and smooth, with integrated acidity. The wine has an elegant core and line that leads to a fine-textured, soft finish of stonefruits and florals. This is a light, soft-textured, smooth-flowing dryish Pinot Gris with subtle stonefruit and floral flavours. Match with mildly spicy Asian fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the Upper Wairau Valley cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 14.0% alc. and 7.8 g/L RS. 16.5-/20 Oct 2016 RRP $16.99
