Scout Wines Marlborough Pinot Gris 2020
'The 2020 Scout Pinot Gris is grown sustainably on the outskirts of Blenheim, on free draining alluvial soils
The fruit was harvested early to retain acidity and freshness. In the winery it was split into two parcels to help build complexity into the finished blend. The majority of wine was fermented in barrel, with some active chardonnay ferment, this helps build some weight on the palate, while the remainder fermented on skins for ten days. The skin fermentation provides the texture and spice in the wine.
The wine definitely takes inspiration from northern Italy rather than Alsace and we think provides great refreshing drinking with a bit of interest on the palate. It’s a great wine to match with food or enjoy on a summer evening.'
