Coopers Creek The Pointer Marlborough Pinot Gris

Cracka Review

Appearance: The grape skins carried an incredible level of colour, thus meaning that this is a very pale gold in its youth. With time it may well pick up some onion skin tints.

Nose: A lovely mix of ripe pears and spice.

Palate: This wine is remarkably full bodied and textural for a Pinot Gris. It had real presence on the mid palate and the flavours linger well after swallowing. It is distinctly off dry and the residual sugar gives the wine tremendous length.

Food: Antipasto platters. Asian inspired cuisine is also a perfect match for this exotic dry white wine.

Cellaring: This wine is already drinking beautifully and will develop more complexity with medium term cellaring.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Awards and Accolades:

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage) says
Mouthfilling, dryish wine with peachy flavours, slightly cirtrusy and spicy notes, moderate acidity and a slightly oily texture. Good food wine.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Fresh, grapey aromas, leading into a medium-bodied palate with peachy, citrusy and slightly nutty flavours, crisp and lively.
