Two Rivers Phoenix Pinot Gris 2023, Marlborough

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Oct-2023
Bright, even, pale straw-yellow. The nose is rich and poised with aromas of orchard fruit, stonefruit, ginger, cinnamon and floral fragrance. Full-bodied, pear, apple and nectarine aromas have a pure core, unfolding ginger, cinnamon, fennel seeds and magnolia. The weighty and creamy mouthfeel flows smoothly with tangy acidity; spices elevate and linger on the finish, lending a dry, crisp finish. This Pinot Gris is beautifully rich with a lovely acid balance and an invigorating, spiced finish. Match with crispy pork belly and salt & pepper squid over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from 60% Awatere Valley, 40% Wairau Valley, fermented cool, predominately in stainless steel, 13.4% alc, 6 g/l RS. Aged on light lees for 4 months. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Oct 2023 RRP $24.99
