Mud House ‘Sub Region Series’ ‘Grovetown’ Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Nov-2016
Full, even, straw-yellow colour with pale gold hues and a suggestion of blush, lighter on the rim. This has a fresh, full nose with soft and up-front, voluminous aromas of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with subtle notes of exotic florals and nuances of rose-petals, revealing stonefruit kernels and nutty elements at the core. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, this has a rounded heart with flavours of white and yellow stonefruits intermixed with subtle notes of florals and honeysuckle, along with nutty suggestions. The palate is smooth-textured and the mouthfeel is refreshing and crisp, with lacy, underlying acidity that leads to a dry, taut finish of stonefruits and florals. This is a rounded, dryish Pinot Gris with stonefruit and floral flavours on a smooth, refreshing palate. Fruit from ‘Grovetown’, fermented in tank with 5% in seasoned French oak barriques to 13.5% alc. and 7.6 g/L RS, the wine aged on light lees. 1,350 cases made. 16.5+/20 Nov 2016 RRP $20.00
