Greywacke Marlborough Pinot Gris 2010

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Aug-2011
An equal mix of ‘Selection Ovaille' and ‘Mission' clones from the ‘Wrekin' vineyard in the Brancott Valley, hand-picked and WBP, 50% indigenous yeast fermented in old French barriques to 14.0% alc. and 8 g/L rs, the wine then aged on lees for 4 months. Full, bright straw-yellow with lemon hues, this has a subtle but voluminous nose of spiced pears, ripe yellow stonefruits, tropical fruits and minerals. The freshness of the fruit provides a poise and elegance. Dryish on palate, this is a fulsome wine with rich, succulent and complex flavours of ripe stonefruits and pears with complexing mineral and delicate, flinty, savoury nuances that add considerable interest. The wine has good tension and liveliness from balancing acidity, and a subtle flavoured finish. Match this wine of presence with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food over the next 4-5+ years. 18.0+/20 Aug 2011 RRP $29.95
