Peter Yealands ‘Reserve’ Marlborough Pinot Gris 2013

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 02-Dec-2013
Fruit from the ‘Neames’ block in the ‘Seaview’ vineyard, cool-fermented to 13.5% alc. and 4 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees 3 months. Bright, very pale straw-yellow, near colourless on edge. The nose is fresh and light with aromatic, lifted, rose-petal florals, exotic stonefruits and hints of honeysuckle, showing with growing depth and presence. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, light and soft flavours of exotic florals are expressed with clarity and freshness. A fine phenolic, textural line supports the fruit and provides good body and line that carries the flavours to a long, sustained finish with floral and honied elementsd. This is a light, soft and subtly flavoured off-dry Pinot Gris with good vinosity. Serve with Asian or Middle Eastern cuisine and most white meat dishes over the next 2+ years. 16.5+/20 Dec 2013 RRP $20.99
