2014 Brancott Estate Letter Series ‘F’ Fairhall Vineyard Pinot Gris, Marlborough
The Brancott Estate ‘F’ Fairhall Vineyard Pinot Gris wine is part of the Letter series range at the higher end of the Marlborough-based winery’s offering and described by the producer as a range of New Zealand wines that are “hand-crafted from grapes sourced from top-performing Marlborough vineyards“.
Tasting Notes: Very intense aromas of white peach, apricot, and pear. It’s also very floral with a touch of sweet spices and Riesling-like petroleum notes.
Enjoyable off-dry and mid-bodied wine, silken texture, and packed full with intense flavors. Slight petillance just after pouring. Quite long on petrol notes.
Food pairing: have it on its own as aperitif, or with delicate sea food entrées.
