Marisco 2017 The Ned Pinot Gris, Marlborough, New Zealand
Named after a mountain that overlooks the property, this is one of the most interesting and boldest Pinot Gris I've ever had. Made in a fully fruited style, it owes its power and full flavors to the fact that a portion of the wine spends time on the skins during and after fermentation. There are nice aromas and flavors of golden apples, white flowers, ginger and nectarine. It has nice round and bold fruit with nice acidity and pleasing round finish. The mouth feel is very rich for a Pinot Gris. Unique and worth a try if you like a balanced, bold and fruity white wine.
