Bladen Marlborough Pinot Gris 2015

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Sep-2015
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is soft and gently full with lifted aromatics of fresh fermentation esters alongside pear fruit entwined with white florals, and a suggestion of minerals. The fruit depth emerges, forming a fine core. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is fresh, bright and zesty, with a fine, tightly bound heart of pear fruit with white and yellow stonefruits, exotic florals and lifted fermentation esters. The mouthfeel is light, lively and fresh, with lacy acidity, the wine guided by a very fine thread of phenolics that carry the wine to a dry, subtly textured, aromatic finish. This is a fresh and youthful off-dry Pinot Gris with lifted pear and floral fruit, and youthful esters notes. Match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from Conders Bend Road, Renwick, partly hand-picked and WBP, cold-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 5.6 g/L RS, the wine aged 2 months on lees. 17.5-/20 Sep 2015 RRP $25.00
