Starborough ‘Family Estate’ Marlborough Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Dec-2014
Fruit 65% from ‘O’Dwyers Farm’, Rapaura and 35% from the ‘Starborough Terrace’ and ‘Long Lane’ sites in the Awatere, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.3% alc. and 5.5 g/L RS. Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, pale on rim. This has an elegant and refined nose with penetrating and focussed aromas of pure white florals, unveiling delicate rose petal and honeysuckle elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegant in proportion with bright and intense flavours of white florals and white stonefruits. The mouthfeel is fine-featured and enlivened by refreshing, lacy acidity. This has good linearity and a driven core that leads to a long, sustained finish with rich fruit and exotic floral, and refreshing herbal nuances. This is an elegant, focussed and pure dry Pinot Gris with subtle florals and stonefruit flavours. Match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese fare over the next 3+ years. 18.0-/20 Dec 2014 RRP $22.00
