Escarpment ‘Gris’ Martinborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 22-Mar-2018
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with a suggestion of blush and a little depth. The nose is softly full with good depth and presence of ripe yellow stonefruits intermixed with savoury exotic yellow florals, a little honeysuckle and nuances of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has gently sweet and lusciously rich flavours of yellow stonefruits entwined with honeysuckle notes, along with nuances of florals and nuts. The mouthfeel is rounded with a soft, deep core, and balanced by light acidity, and underlined by light textures. As the wine flows, the florals and honeysuckle elements blossom and carry to a soft, dry finish. This is a gently rich and luscious dry Pinot Gris with yellow stonefruit and honied flavours on a rounded palate with soft acidity and light grip. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the Martinborough Terrace, given overnight skin contact and fully barrel-fermented to 14.1% alc. and <1 g/L RS, the wine undergoing partial MLF. 17.5+/20 Mar 2018 RRP $29.00
