Tinpot Hut Marlborough Pinot Gris 2011

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 14-Mar-2012
Bright straw-yellow colour with the faintest blush, pale-green on edge. This has a fresh, clean and cutting nose of white florals, pears and stonefruits, showing mineral notes and purity. Dry to taste, this has a smooth, slippery and fine mouthfeel, with light pear and floral fruit flavours and hints of spice. The palate has good body with a little alcohol warmth noticeable, but the wine has excellent balance and a lush mouthfeel. Aromatic florals and refreshing acidity mark the long finish. This is a crisp, slippery Pinot Gris with clarity and purity of aromatic fruit. Match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 3-4 years. The majority of the fruit was sourced from the Blind River region of the Awatere, with a small parcel from the Southern Valleys of the Wairau. Cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.3% alc. and 4.5 g/L rs. 18.0-/20 Mar 2012 RRP $21.95
