Pinot Gris, GreyWacke, Marlborough, New Zealand 2014
Voluptuous aromatics conjure thoughts of a bowl of freshly picked stone fruit- fleshy white peaches, plump golden apricots and sun-ripened nectarines. This is a wine with rich, ripe aromas balanced by a floral purity.
The palate is luscious and textural, reminiscent of homemade apple pie with rich buttery pastry and a faint hint of cinnamon and nutmeg, and an earthy richness. A generous, fleshy style of Pinot Gris with great concentration, depth and a long, luscious finish
The fruit for this wine was grown at Wrekin Terrace Vineyard in the Brancott Valley, a valley floor site on gravelly clay-loam soils typical of the Southern Valleys.
