Margrain Martinborough Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 21-Nov-2016
Bright lemon colour with light golden hues n dome depth, lighter edged. This has a firm and concentrated nose with complex aromas of yellow stonefruits and savoury nutty and apricot kernel notes and layers of minerally lees. The aromatics retain freshness and vitality. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, this has a rounded, but deep and intensely packed core of yellow stonefruits entwined with complex savoury, nutty and stonefruit kernel flavours, along with yellow florals and minerally lees elements. The palate has good depth and presence, with a light phenolic-textured structure. The piquant acidity enhances the aromatic expression and the wine carries with mouthfeel and grip to a long finish of stonefruits and nuts. This is a deep and well-concentrated dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit and savoury nutty flavours, with plenty of presence and energy. Match with most white meat dishes over the next 4-5 years. Estate fruit, a blend of ‘Mission’ clone, from 24 y.o. vines and ‘Mission Barry’ clone, 15 y.o., fermented in tank with 15% in seasoned oak to 13.8% alc. and complete dryness, the wine aged 9 month on lees. 18.0/20 Nov 2016 RRP $24.00
