Kairos ‘Wild Barrique Ferment’ Marlborough Pinot Gris 2010

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-May-2013
Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, pale on rim. The bouquet is full and voluminous with gentle layers of aroma, showing white stonefruit, flint and minerals, intermixed with steely, floral elements. Dry to taste and medium bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with fine flavours of white stonefruits with complexing flint and mineral notes forming a concentrated heart. There is fruit succulence, balanced and cut by firm, fine textures and crisp acidity that lead to a dry, textured finish with some length. This is an elegant, dry Pinot Gris with subtle richness and balancing freshness. Match with seafood and poultry over the next 3-4+ years. Fruit from a single site in the Rarangi district, hand-picked and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months in seasoned French oak barriques. Undergoing 100% MLF and given lees contact with no batonnage. 18.0-/20 May 2013 RRP $25.00
