Mahi Marlborough Pinot Gris 2018

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-Aug-2018
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose has a softly concentrated heart packed with white stonefruits in an interwoven amalgam of flinty lees and subtle nutty oak elements lending complexity. The nose is vibrant with concentrated mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a lively core of fresh white stonefruits, floral notes, pears, unfolding some spicy, nutty oak detail. A line of flinty lees and minerals emerge to lend drive and energy. The mouthfeel is finely-textured and possesses delicate acidity, providing energy and tension. The wine carries to a refreshing finish of vitality. This dry Pinot Gris displays lees and oak notes, but the palate is vibrantly fruited with stonefruit, florals and pears on a palate with line and energy. Serve with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 3+ years. Fruit from a single site outside Ward, fermented in stainless-steel with 7% in seasoned French oak to 13.17% alc. and <1 g/L RS, the wine undergoing batonnage. 18.0+/20 Aug 2018 RRP $22.90
