Awatere River Marlborough Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 25-Oct-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly voluminous with fragrant aromas of exotic yellow stonefruits and florals, with notes of spice and honeysuckle. The nose possesses freshness and vibrancy. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a good core of yellow stonefruits, exotic yellow florals, and savoury honeysuckle and nutty notes. The mouthfeel is fresh with fine, dry, phenolic-textured line and balanced acidity. The wine has plenty of presence and body with underlying drive and linearity. The flavours carry to a sustained finish of exotic fruits and florals. This is a dry Pinot Gris with exotic floral and stonefruit flavours with savoury honeysuckle elements on a fine, dry-textured palate with plenty of presence. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3+ years. 100% Pinot Gris fruit, 46% from Dashwood, Lower Awatere, 33% Upper Awatere and 21% Wairau, tank-fermented with 1% in seasoned barriques to 13.0% alc. and 2.0 g/L RS, the wine 3-4 months on lees. 18.0-/20 Oct 2017 RRP $25.00
