Black Cottage Pinot Gris 2020, Marlborough

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Jul-2020
Bright, even throughout, light yellow. The nose is gently full with aromas of sweet ripe pear, quince with good depth and intensity, along with a subtle note of fresh dill and spice. Light-bodied, dry to taste, the scent of sweet pear energised by citrus and peels, interweaved sea salt, fresh herbs and spicy detail. The palate is crisp and crunchy; lively acidity provides a great drive, flows smoothly along on a lightly oily texture line. This is a crisp, thirst-quenching Pinot Gris with flavours of ripe pear, quince, along with citrus, herbs and subtle spice underlay on an oily, acid drive. Served as an aperitif or Vietnamese pork mince dish over the next 2 years. Fermented in stainless steel tanks to 12.5% alc, 2 g/l RS. Aged on fine lees for 8 weeks. 17.5/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $18
