Black Cottage Marlborough Pinot Gris 2015

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Oct-2015
Bright, very pale straw colour with a slight blush, pale on rim. The nose is light and slender in presentation with fresh aromas of white stonefruits with lifted florals, a touch of honeysuckle and delicate fermentation esters. The aromatics are soft and build in depth with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegant with a fine, firm core and line of white stonefruits along with subtle white floral and honeysuckle notes. The wine flows with good energy, guided by a light phenolic thread and enlivened by fresh acidity, leading to a clean, light finish with stonefruit and honied nuances. This is a clean, crisp and slender, dry Pinot Gris with aromatic lift and a fine dry finish. Serve as an aperitif, and with seafood and poultry over the next 2-3 years. Marlborough fruit cool-fermented in tank to 13.0% alc. and 4.7 g/L RS, the wine aged 10 weeks on lees. 16.5/20 Oct 2015 RRP $18.00
