Pencarrow Martinborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 20-Sep-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale edged. This has a fresh and firmly bound nose with aromas of white stonefruits with lifted white florals a subtle herbal nuances, unfolding minerally lees elements. The nose possesses a steely freshness and detail. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is fresh, bright and lively with a firmly concentrated core of soft, aromatic white stonefruits entwined with white florals, lifted esters, some honeysuckle and mineral notes. The mouthfeel is lively with good linearity, the wine following a fine phenolic threaded line with integrated acidity. The wine grows in richness as it carries to a concentrated, sustained, aromatic finish. This is a finely concentrated dry Pinot Gris with a core of stonefruits and florals, and a lingering finish. Match with seafood, poultry and veal over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the ‘East Base’ vineyard, fermented in stainless-steel with 9% in cask to 13.0% alc. and 7.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 17.5-/20 Sep 2016 RRP $20.65
