Riverby Pinot Gris 2015 – Marlborough

£17.00

Our Pinot Gris block is now gaining some vine age and this is starting to be reflected in our increasingly complex Pinot Gris style. It is important with Pinot Gris to carefully manage yields as left unrestrained this variety can easily get out of hand. Well managed, with low yields, an enticing, crisp and complex wine is achievable given the right vineyard location and an ideal growing season. The grapes for this wine were cropped at less than 10 tonnes to the hectare and harvested at perfect ripeness in the cool of the night. It is 100% Pinot Gris and was handled throughout in stainless steel, with extended time on lees to aid complexity before being bottled.

This Pinot Gris is a pale straw, lemon in colour, and highly aromatic; with spicy, ripe pears, peaches and nectarines and also lovely florals, even delicate old roses, on the nose. Perhaps even a hint of cinnamon. On the palate the myriad of spices continue and the cinnamon is particularly appealing. It is delightfully crisp and refreshing with mouth crunching pears and stone fruit. Overall, it is very clean, crisp and enticing with a long lingering, quite enchanting and very elegant finish. This wine promises to develop considerable complexity and appeal with careful bottle ageing.

Alcohol: 13.3%, Acidity: 5.3, PH: 3.45, Residual Sugar; 10.0.
