Yealands Estate Single Vineyard

Pinot Gris, 2015

New Zealand White

Awatere Valley, Marlborough 75cl

This Trophy winning Pinot Gris is really delicious. Coming from a single vineyard in the Awatere Valley. Ripe stone fruits, pear, and even hints of mango with some typical spice on a lovely aromatic, fresh nose.
It's a lovely, fresh, off-dry style with lots of fruit weight and spice, but retaining some crisp acidity. It's like biting into a ripe pear, leading to peach, with spice and good acidity, some phenolic characters add to the complexity of the wine.
Too many NZ Pinot Gris are too blowsy and alcoholic, this has lovely balance and is really very appealing. Would work well with seafood and white meats, a touch of spice in the food would also make a good match.
