Babich Marlborough Pinot Gris 2011

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Apr-2012
Bright straw-yellow colour, pale on rim. This has a softly full nose of yellow stonefruits unfolding layers of flint and minerals as well as honey and spices. The aromas have depth and density. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, mouthfilling flavours of ripe stonefruits and pears combine with flint and spices backed by a sturdy palate with a slight textural grip and line. Bright acidity provides good liveliness and freshness, and lifts the floral notes of the fruit, and carries through to a crisp, dry finish. This is a full, concentrated and lively Pinot Gris with a textural presence. Match with poultry and pork over the next 3-4 years. Marlborough fruit from different sites, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 3.6 g/L rs, 15% fermented in old French oak and given batonnage. 17.5/-20 Apr 2012 RRP $ 20.00
