te Pa Marlborough Pinot Gris 2017

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Feb-2018
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is finely concentrated with intense and deeply packed aromas of white stonefruits melded with a layering of nutty and flinty lees and oak nuances. This has mineral complexity and detailing. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated heart with tightly bound flavours of white stonefruits, flinty lees, nutty oak and minerals. The fruit forms a taut, textural core with light, grainy phenolics, along with fresh lacy acidity lending freshness and energy. This has good linearity and the wine carries to an elegantly concentrated, lingering finish. This is a tightly bound dry Pinot Gris with white stonefruit, flint and mineral flavours on a textured palate with good freshness. Match with seafood and poultry dishes over the next 3 years. 100% Pinot Gris from the ‘Redwood Hills’ vineyard, Awatere Valley, 80% cool-fermented in stainless-steel and 20% WBP and indigenous yeast barrel-fermented and aged 4 months on lees, the wine at 13.5% alc. and 4 g/L RS. 17.5+/20 Feb 2018 RRP $18.95
