Babich Marlborough Pinot Gris 2013

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Mar-2014
Marlborough fruit predominantly cool-fermented in tank with a portion in old French oak to 14.0% alc. and 4.3 g/L RS, the barrel undergoing batonnage. Bright, even straw-yellow colour, lighter on rim. This has an elegant and lifted nose with white and yellow florals and stonefruits, along with pears and esters that gently grow in volume. Dry to taste, light and aromatically lifted fruit flavours of pears and yellow stonefruits grow to form a good core. The mouthfeel has soft-textures balanced by a gentle lusciousness and subtle fruit sweetness, with flavours of honeysuckle unfolding and carrying to an aromatic, dry finish. This is an aromatic, lifted dry Pinot Gris with softness and a gentle fruit sweetness. Match with Asian cuisine over the next 2-3 years. 17.0/20 Mar 2014 RRP $20.00
