SILENI ESTATES  MARLBOROUGH  “HAWKE’S BAY” PINOT GRIS15 –Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with a suggestion of blush, very light on the edge. The nose is light, tightly bound and fresh with aromas of white stonefruits along with a subtle floral lift, and fresh, steely, mouthwatering mineral elements. Dryish to taste and light-bodied, the palate possesses soft and light flavours of white stonefruits entwined with white florals and soft minerals. The fruit expression is clean and pristine. The mouthfeel is soft with flowing, rounded textures and soft and harmonious acidity lending a hint of unctuousness. The wine carries to a light, simple and clean stonefruited finish.”…29.99
