Framingham Marlborough Pinot Gris 2010

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Jul-2012
Estate grown fruit hand-picked and WBP, 30% indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned oak and stainless-steel barrels to 14.5% alc. and 9 g/L rs, the wine given batonnage, undergoing partial MLF. Bright pale, straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, concentrated aromas of stonefruits, pears and steely minerals build with depth and intensity on the nose. Off-dry to taste, this has softly rich and lush white stonefruit and subtly spiced pear flavours enlivened by bright acidity. The palate is powerful and has good body, being driven by the alcohol, some heat showing, but adding to the smooth, rounded textures. The wine comes together with good balancing sweetness and fruitiness on the finish, with lingering flavours of juicy pears. Subtle in flavour, this Pinot Gris is full in body with luscious richness and power. Match with Asian cuisine over the next 4-5 years. 18.0/20 Jul 2012 RRP $24.95
