Pencarrow Martinborough Pinot Gris 2013

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 23-Apr-2014
Bright, full pale-straw yellow colour with a suggestion of blush, lighter on edge. The bouquet is elegantly presented with concentrated white stonefruit aromas, lifted by delicate floral and honeysuckle notes, and detailed with flinty mineral and fresh herb nuances. Off-dry to taste, a gently luscious amalgam of stonefruits and honeysuckle is enlivened by refreshing acidity and guided by a very fine-textured line. This has subtlety and a gentle richness. Some alcoholic power underlines the mouthfeel and drives the palate to a light, dry and crisp finish, with good length. This is a gentle, off-dry Pinot Gris with subtle richness. Serve with Thai, Japanese and Vietnamese fare over the next 3-4 years. Estate fruit with 15% Pinot Noir (as a blanc), cool-fermented in tank to 13.5% alc. and 6 g/L RS, the wine spending 7 months on lees, the Pinot Noir portion in seasoned oak for this time. 17.5-/20 Apr 2014 RRP $20.65
