Marlborough Pinot Gris 750mL

Product Details

When Jules Taylor made her first wines in 2001 under her own label, just Riesling and Pinot Gris featured. Since then, she's added other varieties and styles, including the ubiquitous Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (which she loves). Recent plantings of two better Pinot Gris clones have resulted in smaller berries with more concentrated fruit flavours. The portion of hand-picked fruit undergoes wild fermentation in older oak barrels with some lees stirring, all of which contributes to the creamy texture and rich flavour of this wondrous wine.

This is definitely Gris, not Grigio with baked quinces, crisp apple and interesting notes of clove spice. Partial barrel ferment helps this wine dial up texture and palate weight.
An enticing alternative to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

    Green apple and quince, layered with some light citrus notes it's got some depth of flavour. Light but persistant in texture it has a lengthy finish which ends fairly dry. Good match with sushi as it's not too overpowering.
