Clark Estate Black Birch Pinot Gris 2022, Marlborough

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Feb-2023
Bright, even, pale straw yellow with depth. The nose is soft and coy, with quince, pear, spice, honey and subtle floral. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of quince, ripe pear entwined with ginger, nutmeg, white floral and a hint of honey. The palate is rich, with complexity, along with an oily mouthfeel. This dry Pinot Gris was initially shy, gaining richness and flavour after aeration, leaving a spicy, long finish. Match with chicken chow mein and pork ribs over the next 3 years. Fermented cool to 13.5% alc, 4.1 g/l RS. Left on yeast lees for an extended period. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Feb 2023 RRP $24
