Kairos ‘Wild Barrique Ferment’ Marlborough Pinot Gris 2009

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 06-Sep-2011
The fruit was sourced from the Rarangi district, wild yeast fermented to 13.5% alc. in seasoned French oak, the wine aged on lees 9 months. Bright, light golden yellow, this has a soft, fulsome nose of ripe yellow stonefruits with flinty notes, hints of smoke, honey and spices. Dry to taste, this is full-bodied with soft textures and rich, spicy-flinty, near-exotic stonefruit flavours. The acidity is soft, but with the alcohol, there is good cut and drive to carry through to the finish. A hearty wine reminiscent of the Alsace style which serves as the model.  Aug 2011
