"The Pointer" Marlborough Pinot Gris 2015

DOUBLE SILVER MEDAL A lovely mix of ripe pears and spice with a just a hint of earthiness.
Winemakers Notes

Our 2015 SV Pinot Gris is a true snapshot of this grape variety in Marlborough. It has been assembled from 12 parcels of fruit (About 40% central Wairau, 28% Awatere, 20% Dillons Point and 12% Southern Valleys). Vintage 2015 was fabulous for Pinot Gris in Marlborough. Lower than usual crops and settled weather allowed the fruit to ripen to perfection. This wine is all stainless fermented and is designed to highlight the beauty of Marlborough Pinot Gris in a great year.

Alc 13.5%
Acid 5.8g/L
Res sugar 6.7g/L
pH 3.49

Tasting Notes
Colour: Very pale gold in its youth. With time it may well pick up some onion skin tints. This is very typical for Pinot Gris as it ages.    
Bouquet: A lovely mix of ripe pears and spice.
Palate: This wine is remarkably full bodied and textural for a Pinot Gris. It had real presence on the mid palate and the flavours linger well after swallowing. It is distinctly off dry and the residual sugar gives the wine tremendous length.

This wine is already drinking beautifully and will develop more complexity with medium term cellaring.
Food Matches
Antipasto platters. Asian inspired cuisine is also a perfect match for this exotic dry white wine.
