Two Rivers ‘Brookby Hill’ Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Oct-2016
Bright straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly fresh with delicate aromas of white and yellow stonefruits along with subtle floral notes entwined with minerally lees, the aromatics building in complexing detail with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is taut and tightly bound with intense flavours of white and yellow stonefruits along with suggestions of honeysuckle and flowers, intermixed with mineral notes. The fruit is gently rich and lush, and is balanced by fine-grained phenolic textures and brisk, thirst-quenching acidity providing a positive and energetic line. The wine carries to a long, lingering, tightly contained, textural finish of stonefruits and florals. This is a tight, youthfully taut, dry Pinot Gris with intense stonefruit flavours and floral and honied detail on a fine-textured, brisk palate. Match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the ‘Brookby Hill’ vineyard, Omaka, vines 16.y.o., hand-picked and 90% cool-fermented in stainless-steel with 10% indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned French oak barriques to 13.0% alc. and 4.1 g/L RS, the wine aged 4 months on lees. 550 cases made. 18.0+/20 Oct 2016 RRP $24.00
