Wairau River Marlborough Pinot Gris 2014

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 25-Nov-2014
Fruit from the ‘Home’ block, from vines dating back to 1990 planting, cool-fermented in stainless-steel, with a portion in seasoned French oak to 14.0% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS. Brilliant stra-yellow colour with a suggestion of blush at the heart, pale on rim. This has a full and broad nose of bright and aromatic yellow stonefruits with nuts and kernels, along with exotic florals and spice notes. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, luscious flavours of stonefruits, florals and honeysuckle fill the mouth, forming a solid, rounded core. The wine is robust with good weight and presence, with subtle textures and soft acidity balancing the fruit. As the wine flows, the phenolics grow, leading to a soft, textured, dry finish. This is a full and robust dryish Pinot Gris with lush flvours and a dry, textured finish. Serve with most white meat dishes and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4 years. 18.0+/20 Nov 2014 RRP $20.00
