Mission ‘Vineyard Selection’ Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-Jan-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the edge. The nose is moderately concentrated with steely and refreshing aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, along with subtle notes of fresh herbs and exotic florals, unfolding minerally lees notes. The aromatics build in depth with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses flavours of peach and yellow stonefruits along with notes of exotic tropical fruits and honeysuckle, with mineral nuances emerging. The mouthfeel is bright and energetic with light fruit extract and phenolic textures, and fresh, lacy acidity. As the wine flows, sweet fruit and floral notes unfold and carry to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a dry Pinot Gris which unfolds gently rich and sweet stonefruit, tropical fruit and honied flavours on a light, textured, refreshing palate. Match with Chinese cuisine over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the company’s ‘Blind River’ vineyard, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.3% alc. and 6 g/L RS, the wine aged a short time on lees. 17.5+/20 Feb 2017 RRP $20.00
