Description

"A delightfully easy drinking Pinot Gris; the gently lifted bouquet shows nectarine, fresh pear, rockmelon and subtle spice aromas, leading to a beautifully rounded palate that is juicy and smooth. It is harmonious and well balanced with a lingering supple finish" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jul 2019

Beautifully rounded flavours of crisp Braeburn apple and fragrant ripe pear with a hint of honeysuckle.  The finish shows well balanced acidity ensuring a refreshing mouth-feel and dry finish that lingers.  The fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness and after pressing the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to enhance the purity of varietal flavours.

The Echo was a 104 ft scow, rigged as a topsail schooner, used to transport goods in the early 1900s, from Marlborough’s coastal Wairau Bar, to the town of Blenheim by the way of the Opawa river. Todays the river meanders through Marlborough’s flourishing vineyards of the lower Wairau plain.

Food Pairing: Well matched with roast pork and a stewed pear sauce or creamy pasta.

Good value, but as someone used to very dry Italian Pinot Grigio, I found it a bit too strong tasting (fully flavoursome) for me, I like very dry and not too 'tasty'!
