Pencarrow Martinborough Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 12-Jan-2015
Bright straw-yellow colour with a suggestion of golden hues, pale on rim. The nose has good volume and vinosity with gentle fruit expression, opening to show ripe yellow stonefruits intermixed with pears and nuances of honey and florals. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits and pears are gently luscious and rich, and stylishly subtle. Soft acidity adds to the weight and rounded mouthfeel. The palate follows a fine thread of dry phenolic textures that carry the wine to a long, dry finish with honeysuckle and spice nuances. This is a dry Pinot Gris with subtle stonefruit and honeysuckle flavours and a fine, dry-textured mouthfeel. Serve with antipasto and most white meat courses over the next 3 years. Fruit predominantly from the company’s ‘East Base’ vineyard fermented with 6% in seasoned oak to 13.1% alc. and 6 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months on lees. 17.5-/20 Jan 2015 RRP $20.65
