Margrain Martinborough Pinot Gris 2010

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 17-Jan-2013
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, pale on rim. This has a moderately full and voluminous nose with subtly complex aromas of minerals, stonefruits, herbs and nuts with secondary toasty notes. Dry and full-bodied, the flavours are tightly held and restrained, forming a core that reveals nuances of stonefruits, herbs, minerals and nuts. The acidity is balanced and the mouthfeel is soft in texture, with some alcohol warmth adding to the presence. There is good integration of flavour and texture and the wine has a dry, softly textured finish with alcohol power and drive. This is a dry Pinot Gris with integrated secondary notes and some alcohol drive, in the Alsace style. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 3+ years. ‘Mission' clone fruit from 18 y.o. vines and ‘Barrie' clone from 8 y.o. vines, stainless-steel fermented to 14.1% alc. and dryness, the wine aged 6 months on full lees. 16.5+/20 Jan 2013 RRP $28.00
