Pinot Gris Marlborough 2018 - 750ml


New Zealand Pinot Gris has come of age and the quiet Alsatian grape is certainly making itself heard in Marlborough. This is a wine with depth of flavour, texture and interest. Rose petal, poached pear and vanilla aromas entice the nose. Honeysuckle and red apple flavours follow with a subtle nod to Crème Brule. The palate is rich and weighty, with the perfect balance of fine acidity and residual sweetness. The grapes come from Marlborough’s Awatere Valley, the coolest and driest of all the subregions, which gives unrivalled aroma and flavor intensity. Picked at optimal ripeness, fermented, and then left on yeast lees for several months, the result is an opulent, lush style of Pinot Gris, reminiscent of Alsatian Pinot Gris form Northern France.
