Isabel Estate Pinot Gris 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Isabel Estate Vineyard was established in 1982 to produce premium classical grape varieties in Marlborough. Prior to the 1994 vintage, Proprietor Michael Tiller, then an airline pilot with Air New Zealand, together with his wife Robyn, operated Isabel Estate successfully as a contract grape growing vineyard supplying some of Marlborough's leading wine producers with much sought after premium fruit. The character and individuality of their fruit derived from a unique soil profile and vineyard location encouraged them to produce and market their own wine under the Isabel Estate label. This was regarded as the most natural of evolutionary steps. Due do a pre-ferment cold soak, the ’07 Pinot Gris displays a gorgeous pale champagne hue in the glass. The nose is complex and aromatic - tropical fruit, luscious lychees, almond and subtle rose. On the palate, rich nectar and apricot flavours are upfront with vanilla, white stonefruit and creamy nuts lingering on the finish. The mid-palate combines green apple and pear, which reiterates the Isabel style - fresh, clean & crisp. Lees contact is apparent, offering lovely mouth feel. A beautiful wine with natural oysters but also stands up to roasted pork and duck dishes.
