Lawson’s Dry Hills Marlborough Pinot Gris 2011

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 26-Apr-2012
Bright straw-yellow colour with a faint blush tinge, pale on edge. This has a full, aromatic bouquet of exotic florals and yellow stonefruits, lifted with youthful fermentation esters. The nose has richness and depth. Dryish to taste and full-bodied, restrained stonefruit flavours and subtle spice notes gently fill the palate. The mouthfeel is soft, rounded and near unctuous, the low acidity and unobtrusive alcohol contributing to a sense of generosity. The wine has good depth and length, with nuances of spice and lifted esters showing on the finish. A very aromatic wine, this will develop greater richness and flavour to complement the palate generosity over the next 3-4 years. Serve with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean themed cuisine. Fruit from the ‘Barnsley' and company's vineyards in the Waihopi cool-fermented in stainless steel, with 16% in old French oak to 13.8% alc. and 7 g/L rs, the oak portion partially by wild yeasts. 18.0-/20 Apr 2012 RRP $25.00
