Sam Kim reviews The Kings Thorn Pinot Gris 2010

A stunning expression of the variety showing all the likeable flavours of stonefruit, pear and spice together with palate- pleasing rich texture and intensity leading to a refreshing finish. The wine is beautifully framed and most appealling.

The Kings Thorn Pinot Gris 2009

It’s full bodied, full-flavoured and every sip lingers the way a great meal does. Flavours run from pear juice to ripe peaches, but it’s the full bodied style that give this pinot gris its edge.

The Kings Thorn Pinot Gris 2009

91/100 4.5 Stars

It’s exuberant and nicely fragrant on the nose displaying stonefruit, spiced pear and citrus characters. The palate is gratifying and full with lovely smooth texture, a hint of sweetness (6 g/l) and bright acidity. The wine is generous and plush on the palate and flows beautifully to a lingering finish. At its best: now to 2012.

4 STARS, Yvonne Lorkin, Dish Magazine

One of the prettiest pinot gris I’ve seen, coral pink and boasting sexy pear and pecan-pie aromas, crisp white peach and spritzy, spicy, gum-tingling acidity. Named after some trouble making ancestors of company owner Brent Marris, the Marisco brand not only has some pretty sharp wines, but it has a pretty sharp website www.marisco.co.nz, which is where you’ll find all the information you’ll need to find the wines.
