Description

"The wine offers excellent drinkability and friendly mouthfeel. It’s elegantly fruited and fragrant on the nose showing ripe stone fruit, fresh pear and jasmine characters with subtle spicy complexity. The palate is juicy and smooth with lovely purity, finishing long and silky. Brilliantly priced" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Apr 2017

Beautifully rounded flavours of crisp pear and stonefruit with a hint of honeysuckle.  The finish shows well balanced acidity ensuring a refreshing mouth-feel.  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. At its best over the next two to three years.

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 an assortment of dishes including fresh fish, lightly spiced meats or a selection of cheese.

Doug - 30/09/2018

Great quaffer at this price, have ordered more. Being 2016 it has a little more age than most in its price range , little bit more mellow.

Vey pleasant o drink but not as good as the Dusk Sound Pinot Gris.
