Charles Wiffen Marlborough Pinot Gris 2010

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Apr-2012
Soft straw-yellow colour with the faintest hint of blush, pale on rim. This has a tightly bound, but concentrated bouquet of yellow stonefruits with flinty complexities, revealing notes of spices, honey and yellow florals. Off-dry, this has good weight and presence, showing luscious flavours of sweet, ripe stonefruits combined with lively and refreshing acidity. Layers of honey, spices, minerals and nuts unfold, adding an unctuous, creamy texture to the mouthfeel. Soft and harmonious, this has excellent tension and energy that carries through to a sustained, subtly nuanced finish. This is an appealing Pinot Gris that combines richness and near-unctuous textures with refreshing acidity. Match with Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine over the next 3-4+ years. Third crop fruit, stainless-steel fermented with 12% in old oak to 13.0% alc. and 18.0 g/L rs, the wine given light lees contact. 18.0-/20 Apr 2012 RRP $24.00 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
