Grove Mill Wairau Valley Marlborough Pinot Gris 2018

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Nov-2018
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light green-gold hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is very fresh and taut with elegantly concentrated aromas of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with subtle notes of exotic florals, pears and honeysuckle, along with minerally suggestions. This is pure and possesses clarity. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has an elegantly concentrated and tightly bound core of white and yellow stonefruits, entwined with exotic florals, with pear and honeysuckle nuances, unveiling refreshing mineral elements. The palate has a fine-textured line guiding the wine as it flows with balanced acidity, leading to a taut, lingering finish. This is a taut, medium-dry Pinot Gris with elegant flavours of stonefruits and exotic florals with a fresh mouthfeel and a fine-textured line. Serve with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 3 years. 100% Pinot Gris fruit from the ’17 Valley’ vineyard and a site in the Omaka Valley, Wairau Valley, cool-fermented in stainless-steel with 5% in French oak to 13.0% alc. and 7.22 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 18.0-/20 Nov 2018 RRP $20.00
