Mahi Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Nov-2016
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with hints of green and a suggestion of blush, pale on the rim. The nose is very tight and taut, with refreshing and steely aromas of white stonefruits and white florals, revealing a little honeysuckle and nuances of nuts and smoke. The aromatics are very fine and detailed. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is tightly bound with a fine and concentrated core of white stonefruits, white florals, and nutty and mineral elements. The mouthfeel is bright, lively and refreshing with lacy acidity, and the wine flows along a fine-textured line that carries to a long, lingering finish of stonefruits and nuts. This is a taut, finely concentrated dry Pinot Gris with flavours of white stonefruits and florals and subtle nutty notes on a fresh and fine-textured palate. Serve with seafood and poultry over the next 3+ years. All free-run juice, fruit from ‘Ward Farm’, southern Awatere, predominantly machine picked and fermented in stainless-steel, with 12% in seasoned French oak to 14.0% alc. and <1.0 g/L RS. 17.5+/20 Nov 2016 RRP $22.90
