Wine Tasting Note: Margrain Pinot Gris, 2004, Marlborough, New Zealand.
Available from Oddbins for £9.99.
This is just bursting with orange-tinged, peachy ripeness. The nose is quiet (as PG usually is) while the palate offers a full, orange-tinged peachy ripeness. A touch of smoke and apple peel, comes with a food-friendly texture. Full but dry. Soft and approachable. Alcohol 13.5%. This was delicious served with a chicken and veg risotto a staple dish in Gladstone Terrace. I am not too sure that the rear labels recommendation that the wine is drunk ‘between 2005 and 2010 and beyond’ will hold up. It is very good drinking now; so why wait?
Scribblings Rating – 90/100

    GigondasI’ve become a Perrin family blog addict. In my opinion, this is the perfect implementation of a blog for a winery. The blog is updated frequently (in both French and English) and the family provides interesting insight into their harvest

    dont you find it a little tiny expensive? especially when the name is meant to confuse those that want to buy Pinot Grigio! ;)

    Although I enjoyed it immensely I actually preferred the Spy Valley Pinot Gris. (if you roll over the green text you will see the ratings – this one received a 3 for value the Spy Valley a 4).
    I wont comment on your Pinot Grigio assertion!
    ;-)
