Margrain Martinborough Pinot Gris 2011

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 11-Aug-2013
Bright straw-yellow colour, pale on rim. The nose is elegantly rich with an array of detailed and complex aromas of white and yellow stonefruits interwoven with savoury honeysuckle and flinty lees notes. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the flavours are restrained and discreet with gentle stonefruit notes alongside nuts and flint in a complex amalgam. There is good underlying power and linear drive from the alcohol, and fine textures carry the fruit. The acidity is soft and contributes to a solid mouthfeel, with growing layers of flavour unfolding and leading to a very long, dry, stonefruity finish. This is a subtly flavoured, complex, dry Pinot Gris with good weight and power. Match with most first courses and semi hard cheeses over the next 3-4+ years. Fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and dryness, the wine aged on lees 8 months. 18.0/20 Aug 2013 RRP $30.00
