Two Tails Marlborough Pinot Gris 2015

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Sep-2016
Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues and a suggestion of blush, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full and gently packed with restrained aromas of yellow stonefruits and pears entwined with honeysuckle, and an amalgam of yellow florals and minerals, unfolding rose-petal notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses lush and rich flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits and pears with a little honeysuckle. The fruit sweetness is balanced by crisp, refreshing acidity and light phenolic textures that lend presence to the mouthfeel. The flavours are rounded in concentration and flow with good linearity, leading to a fine-textured, lingering finish of florals and stonefruits. This is a moderately rich and lush Pinot Gris with stonefruit and pear flavours balanced by fresh acid and light textures. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the Waihopi Valley fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 2.6 g/L RS. 17.5/20 Sep 2016 RRP $18.95
