Volcanic Hills Marlborough Pinot Gris 2015

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 19-Dec-2015
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, lighter on edge. The nose is gently full and voluminous with lifted aromas of bright white and yellow stonefruits, pears and florals, building in depth and density in the glass. Some youthful fermentation esters add to the fragrance. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of pears and white stonefruits are tightly bound, but unfold floral elements as the wine flow. This has a soft-textured core and positive line, the palate showing good vinosity and presence. The acidity is integrated, and the wine carries to a light, lingering finish with light pear flavours. This is a soft, aromatic, off-dry Pinot Gris with good mouthfeel. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 2+ years. Marlborough fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 6.25 g/L RS. 16.5/20 Dec 2015 RRP $23.95
