Pinot Gris



Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) Marlborough enjoyed a typically long dry Autumn in 2000 and as a result of a mid-April harvest, the fruit for this wine was in premium condition and beautifully balanced from a lower than normal cropping level. Ripe flavors abound and combined with varietal freshness and balanced acid, this wine already shows great palate weight and drinkability. Serve with a range of fine cuisine particularly shellfish or simply enjoy as an aperitiff.Alcohol Level: 13%
