Starborough ‘Family Estate’ ‘Sons of the Soil’ Marlborough Pinot Gris 2018

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 09-Oct-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale edged. The nose is elegant ant tightly bound with a fine core of white and yellow stonefruits along with a little nutty note, unfolding pear elements and chalky minerals. Dry to taste, the palate is softly concentrated with fresh flavours of white and yellow stonefruits with pears and subtle notes of exotic florals. The fruit forms a well-packed heart and flows along a bright and vibrant line with a little underlying power and drive. This is smooth and near seamless with fine acid balance providing energy and tension. The wine carries to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a softly concentrated, elegant dryish Pinot Gris with exotic flavours of stonefruits, pears and florals on a smooth flowing palate with some power. Serve with Asian cuisine over the next 3 years. Fruit from 85% ‘O’Dwyers Farm’ and 15% ‘Starborough Terrace’, fermented in tank with 10% in barrel to 12.8% alc., and 5.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 18.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $21.99
