Description

Astrolabe Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016

Astrolabe Marlborough Pinot Gris is another beauty from Astrolabe. Pale gold-straw colour. The bouquet opens with poached pear, white peach and citrus rind with a light whiff of cardamom and vanilla pod. Pure, crisp and dry palate with a delicate structure and fine minerality. Ripe pear, quince, sweet peach and bright red apple flavours that follow through to a mineral finish. Easy-drinking and versatile to pair with food.

100% Pinot Gris. Blend of Pinot Gris grown across a wide range of the Marlborough winegrowing region: Awatere Valley, Waihopai Valley and Kekerengu Coast.

Hand-picking of half the grapes, while the other half is machine harvested at night to retain as much fruit freshness as possible. Delicate whole cluster pressing to add fine texture, weight and minerality. The portion that went through hand-picking is fermented on solids.

 

Ageing potential: Will reward with careful cellaring over several years and is already drinking well.

WILFRED WONG OF  – 89 POINTS

The 2016 Astrolabe Province Pinot Gris is a lovely white wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine is fresh and pleasing. Its bright aromas and flavors of tart citrus and stone fruits are bright and lasting. Pair it with seared scallops. (Tasted: September 18, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
