Clark Estate ‘Single Vineyard’ Awatere Valley Marlborough Noble Pinot Gris 2011

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Sep-2012
Fully botrytised fruit barrel-fermented with over 350 g/L rs, this wine blended with the regular Pinot Gris wine to 10.4% alc. and 165 g/L rs. Bright, light golden yellow colour with good depth, pale on edge. The bouquet is softly full with a deep and dense core of marmalade, wild honey and showing a subtle nuttiness. Lifted tropical fruit aromas and rich botrytis abound. Very sweet, this is very soft and rounded on palate, with marmalade, discreet tropical fruits and honey harmoniously filling the palate with unctuous textures. This is very luscious and near decadent in its oiliness, the acidity appears low, adding to the breadth and weight. The flavours flow to a very long, thickly textured finish. This is a soft, decadent, unctuous and harmonious dessert wine that will match steamed puddings and creamy, caramel dishes over the next 4-5 years. 300 dozen made. (375 ml) 18.0/20 Sep 2012 RRP $30.00
