Clark Estate Black Birch Pinot Gris 2020, Marlborough

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Dec-2020
Clear, straw-yellow with a gold hue, even colour throughout. The nose is full, a concentrated core aroma of pear, melon, baked apple, entwined with the floral scent of lilies and discreet five-spice. Medium-full bodied, the palate is lush with good intensity aromas of ripe pear, baked apple and melon. The palate has weight and power, enriched by subtle sweetness and lingering five-spice. The mouthfeel is round with good flow, supported by lively integrated acidity, lends a succulent finish. This is a powerful Pinot Gris with lush fruit and subtle five-spice on a round, smooth mouthfeel. Match with crispy-skin duck and roast pork over the next 3-4 years. Cool fermented to 13% alc, 7 g/l RS. Left on full lees for an extended period. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Nov 2020 RRP $23
