Framingham Marlborough Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 25-Oct-2015
Hand-picked fruit, WBP, 55% cool-fermented in stainless-steel and aged 8 months on light lees, and 45% indigenous yeast fermented in old oak and stainless-steel barrels with batonnage for 8 months, the wine at 13.5% alc. and 9 g/L RS. Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, paler edged. The bouquet is full and softly concentrated with aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits in a harmonious amalgam with yellow florals, honey, nuts and nuances of flinty, minerally lees. The aromatics show depth and plenty of presence. Off-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features rich layers of flavours, showing yellow stonefruits, honeysuckle and nutty oak elements. This has density and mouthfeel, with soft textures and integrated acidity. The wine is smooth-flowing with a suggestion of unctuousness, and carries to a soft, long and sustained finish of apricots, honey and nuts. This is a rich and layered off-dry Pinot Gris with flavours of stonefruits, honey and nuts. Serve with Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine over the next 3+ years. 18.5/20 Oct 2015 RRP $25.00
