te Pa Marlborough Pinot Gris 2018

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Nov-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, paler on the rim. The nose is elegant in proportion with a gentle core of white and yellow stonefruits along with exotic floral notes, entwined with fresh herb nuances and suggestions of nuts. Mouthwatering mineral elements add to the freshness. This has delicacy, and builds in intensity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a rich and rounded core, packed with layered flavours of white and yellow stonefruits, exotic florals, some pear and honied notes, and mineral nuances. The mouthfeel is smooth-flowing with moderately crisp underlying acidity, and there is some alcoholic power providing drive. The wine carries to a sustained finish. This is a rich and concentrated dry Pinot Gris with a rounded and smooth mouthfeel and some power. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3+ years. 100% Pinot Gris from the ‘Redwood Hill’ vineyard, Awatere, 55% cool-fermented in stainless-steel and aged 4 months on light lees, and 45% fermented in barrel with full solids, and aged 4 months on gross lees, the wine at 13.5% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS. 18.0+/20 Nov 2018 RRP $19.95
