STARBOROUGH FAMILY ESTATE PINOT GRIS 2016 is available to buy in increments of 1
Starborough wines have been making their mark over the past 3-4 years with their Sauvignon Blanc (Michael Cooper's White Wine Buy of the Year 2016 issue) and also with their consistently 5 star rated Pinot Gris. ​Made in the drier style with richness from partial barrel ferment and extended lees contact. It has nice weight and succulence showing excellent fruit intensity and a silken texture.
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2016 Vintage)
"This is instantly appealing on the nose displaying pineapple, poached pear, citrus and floral characters with a touch of spice complexity. The palate is concentrated and succulent, and shows excellent fruit intensity and silky texture, leading to a lingering smooth finish. Wonderfully expressive and likable. At its best: now to 2019."
5 Stars & 18.5-/20 Raymond Chan, September 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour with some depth, paler edged. This has an elegantly concentrated and finely poised nose with an array of fresh aromatics at the core, showing white and yellow stonefruits, nuances of exotic florals and rose-petals, along with suggestions of honeysuckle, fermentation esters and mineral elements. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is finely concentrated with aromatic white and yellow stonefruits lifted by exotic florals, rose-petal elements and complexing nutty and flinty nuances. The palate has depth, following a light phenolic-textured line with integrated, lacy acidity, and the wine carries to a long and lingering finish of stonefruits and florals. This is a finely concentrated dryish Pinot Gris with aromatic and exotic fruit, light textures and fresh acid poise. Serve with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese fare over the next 3 years. Hand-picked Pinot Gris fruit, 65% from ‘O’Dwyers Farm’, Rapaura, and 35% from the ‘Starborough Terrace’ and ‘Long Lane’ sites, Awatere, cool-fermented in stainless-steel with 10% in seasoned oak to 13.6% alc. and 5.8 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on light lees."
