Charles Wiffen Marlborough Pinot Gris 2009

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Sep-2011
Second crop from the ‘Wiffen' vineyard, fermented to 12.5% alc. and 12 g/L rs, 10% in seasoned French oak barriques. Bright, deep straw-yellow colour with some golden hues, this has a full, voluminous nose, the aromas of pears and ripe yellow stonefruits a little shy, but with some flinty, minerally interest. Off-dry to taste, this is full and rounded on palate, with restrained pear and peachy flavours. There is good weight, and an unctuous texture is enhanced by lowish acidity and a creaminess. This has a warmth and succulence, and the shy flavours should unfold over the next 2-3+ years. Match with antipasto and Mediterranean cuisine . 17.0+/20 Sep 2011 RRP $24.00 Light golden hues to the straw-yellow colour, the nose is soft, full and ripe with pear fruit along with a little flinty lees work showing. Off-dry to taste, the lees nuttiness and creamy texture adds to the weight and gentle succulence from the fruit. The flavours are a little shy at present, but should unfold over the next 2-3+ years. 12.5%alc., and 12 g/L rs.  Apr 2011  RRP $24.00 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
