Bloody Bay Marlborough Pinot Gris 2009

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Mar-2011
Grass Cove in Queen Charlotte Sound was renamed Bloody Bay by the captain of HMS Adventure after an incident on 17 October 1773. Light golden hued straw-yellow, with a hint of peach blush to the colour. This has an attractive full, fat nose of apricots and yellow stonefruits. Dryish on palate with 4.84 g/L rs, this has definable varietal character of soft, ripe pears and stonefruits. The 14.5% alcohol is noticeable, but the acidity is in good balance. Some phenolic grip detracts a little. A wine to drink now, matched with Asian cuisine. 15.5-/20 Mar 2011 RRP $15.99
