Latest reviews for the new release 2019 Marlborough Pinot Gris

Cameron Douglas MS93 Points Ripe, fruity, varietal, organic, fresh and real. Aromas of white fleshed fruit, pear skin, leesy spice and a touch of beer. Weighty, fruity, fresh and dry on the palate with flavours that mirror the nose. There’s a complexity too with layers of spice and texture, fruit and lees, balance of acidity and alcohol. Well made, fresh and youthful. Ready to from from today and through summer 2022. A delicious wine. JamesSuckling.com93 Points In other white styles, Mahi’s Pinot Gris 2019 leads the way for this variety with mouth-watering peach and nectarine fruits. Mount Difficulty’s 2018 Pinot Gris displays rich fruit, succulence and long flavor with deep refreshment. These wines show how to deliver the sort of balance that is key to success with this variety. There’s still so much in the way of off-dry, vaguely savory and quite dowdy pinot gris wines being made and few nail the balance of texture, flavor and freshness like Mahi and Mount Difficulty, both of which rated 93 points in this report.TOP SCORING PINOT GRIS FOR NEW ZEALAND Bob Campbell MW94 Points
