Babich ‘Black Label’ Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Apr-2017
Bright pale straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-green hues, lighter edged. This has a fresh and elegantly presented nose with finely concentrated aromas of white stonefruits and pears with nuances of exotic florals, hints of honeysuckle and nutty and minerally nuances. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a tightly bound core of white and yellow stonefruits with hints of exotic florals and honeysuckle. The palate is stylishly restrained in flavour, but shows good weight and body, a positive vinous line with integrated acidity. The wine flows with good energy along a smooth line leading to a moderately long, subtly nuanced finish. This an elegantly concentrated dry Pinot Gris with subtle flavours of stonefruits with floral and honeysuckle notes on a palate with good body and smooth line. Serve with Thai, Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine over the next 3 years. Marlborough fruit fermented in stainless-steel, with 20% in seasoned French oak to 13.5% alc. and 1.9 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Apr 2017 RRP On-premise only
