Jules Taylor Marlborough Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Nov-2017
Bright, even straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly expressed with good depth of white and yellow stonefruits melded with subtle notes of honeysuckle, nuances of exotic florals, and hints of nuts and minerals. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has elegantly concentrated and balanced flavours of white and yellow stonefruits along with nuances honeysuckle, exotic florals and minerals. The fruit forms a positive core and flows with energy along a fine-textured line with balanced acidity. The flavours carry to an elegant, lingering, nuanced finish of stonefruits and florals. This is a moderately concentrated, well-balanced dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral and honeysuckle flavours on a fine-textured palate. Serve with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese fare over the next 3+ years. Fruit from Taylors Pass and Lower Wairau, cool-fermented in tank, a portion hand-picked, WBP and indigenous yeast fermented in barrel to 13.5% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS, the barrel component undergoing lees aging and MLF. 18.0/20 Nov 2017 RRP $24.99
