Invivo Marlborough Pinot Gris

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Invivo are relative 'newbies' to the wine industry, but boy are they making an impression! Hot on the tail of the awesome savvy, comes this highly glugable pinot gris. Scents of nashi pears, stone fruits and almonds decorate the nose, whilst the palate is surprising fullsome with fleshy peach flavours, a touch of sweetness, and a bright, lemony finish. Some spicy chicken wings would be great with this!

Winemaker's Notes

The nose offers perfume of pears, quince and subtle candied fruit. The palate backs this up with sweet pear/fig dominating the fruit flavours and soft texture. The wine is silky and deceptively full bodied showing nice balance of sugar and acid leaving a clean and crisp finish that is not oily or cloying. A great lunch time wine that is versatile with many foods but will excel when paired with white cheeses, ceaser salads and chicken dishes.

4 stars - Charmain Smith, Otago Daily Times

"Just off dry with tropical fruit, a hint of peach, apple strudel spices and a twist of lemon, it's tantalising fresh and takes chilling well"

Invivo Marlborough Pinot Gris

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage) says
Mouthfilling, with ripe, peachy flavours, showing very good delicacy and depth, and a basically dry (4 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish.

Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
The 2011 vintage is an off-dry style, mouth filling and moderately concentrated, with pear, lychee and spice flavours, showing good varietal character, a slightly creamy texture, and drink-young appeal.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Defined musk and rose petal aromas and soft, slippery palate with powerful citrus flavours.
