Babich Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Apr-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is soft with delicate aromas of white and yellow stonefruits along with rose-petal and exotic floral elements. Pear and honeysuckle nuances, and suggestions of nuts and minerals emerge, and the nose builds in volume with aeration. Dryish to taste, the palate has soft, gently mouthfilling flavours of white and yellow stonefruit, pears, exotic florals and honeysuckle. The palate has good body and some underlying alcohol drive, the wine flowing smoothly to a long, sustained finish of stonefruits, spice and musk. This is a softly mouthfilling dryish Pinot Gris with gentle flavours of stonefruits, pears and exotic florals on a positively driven, linear palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3 years. Marlborough fruit fermented in stainless-steel with approx. 10% in seasoned oak to 14.0% alc. and 1.7 g/L RS. 17.0+/20 Apr 2017 RRP $ 19.95
