Kim Crawford Pinot Gris Marlborough 2009
Fruit for our Pinot Gris comes from five to seven year old vines grown in silt, river stone soils which are cropped throughout the season to ensure optimal concentration of flavour and acidity profile. Upon harvest, grapes are destemmed and pumped to press. Juice is drained immediately and left to settle for 36-48 hours. Fermentation then commences using a range of yeasts chosen for their ability to enhance the flavour profile and palate weight. The wine is then stabilized, filtered, blended, and bottled ready for your enjoyment.
One of the reasons why New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs have taken the world by storm. Delightful to the point of exuberance, this is a great wine for drinking alone of with lighter fare.
Two and a half glasses
Chilled to perfection is how I like to drink this Pinot Gris. Fruity and smooth. I really like this wine.
Nice soft wine. Well balanced, with a long finish. Light and buttery. Great for pre-dinner drinks
