'11 Noble Pinot Gris Bottling Note
This Marlborough Pinot Gris (Pinot Grigio) is made from botrytised grapes. Botrytis is an infection which dehydrates grapes leaving behind the sugars and acids. This can ruin a harvest unless you wish to make a sweet wine such as this then it is a desirable quality. This delicious sweet wine has honeyed citrus notes and good acidity.
Honey and orange zest on the nose leading to a sweet palate with notes of apricots and tropical fruits. The acidity cuts through well which ensures the 160g of residual sugar isn't overpoweringly sweet. Delicious!
