Marisco Vineyards “The Ned” Pinot Gris 2018 Marlborough, New Zealand
Pinot Gris (Grigio)
Our favorite thing about this wine is that a portion of the wine has skin contact. That does a couple things to the wine; it darkens the color a bit, making it look a little pink and it adds skin tannin and structure to the wine. As it stands, the wine has floral notes on the nose, a lot of good minerality, heavier mouthfeel and a lot of melon and stone fruit. The added tannin and structure along with a little acidity really keeps this wine balanced and complete. This is a full-bodied wine with a slight presence of sweetness and a bunch of fun things going on.
Pair with seared scallops or a fresh fruit salad.
