Babich ‘Black Label’ Marlborough Pinot Gris 2010

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Oct-2011
100% Pinot Gris predominantly stainless-steel fermented with a portion in seasoned French oak to 14.0% alc. Bright, light golden-straw colour with some depth, the nose has soft, full, ripe pear and apricot aromas along with some honey. Dry to taste, soft ripe apricot and yellow stonefruit flavours are intermixed with ripe pear notes. This has good body and weight, some alcohol heat noticeable, the moderate acidity contributing a roundness to the texture. The wine finishes with dry stonefruit notes. This is up-front and straightforward, and will be a match with antipasto, poultry and Asian fare over the next 2-3 years. 16.0+/20 Oct 2011 RRP On-premise only
