Sugar Loaf Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Jun-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, a little paler edged. The nose is fresh and bright with fragrant aromatic aromas of white florals, pears, white stonefruits, nuances, honeysuckle and fresh fermentation esters, unfolding suggestions of spice and rose-petals. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is lively and vibrant with aromatic and lifted flavours of yellow stonefruits with exotic florals and hints of spices. The mouthfeel has tension and poise, and follows a fine-textured line with fresh, lacy acidity providing good energy, carrying to a light, nuanced, lingering finish. This is a bright, fresh, aromatic dryish Pinot Gris with stonefruit and floral flavours on a poised and lively palate. Serve with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3+ years. Wairau Valley fruit tank-fermented with 10% in barrel to 13.0% alc. and 5 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 17.5+/20 Jun 2017 RRP $20.00
