Isabel Estate, Pinot Gris, Marlborough, 2017
With more than a nod to Alsace, this Pinot Gris offers a powerful display of ginger, brown pears, honeysuckle, apples and light rosewater sweetness. The rich palate, awash with layers of fruit (nectarine, pears, red apples) remains underpinned with a stony minerality. Maybe a hint of residual sugar provides a silky overlay to the finish. Structured and very well made.
RRP: $29 (AU)
