Gem Wines

Gem Marlborough Pinot Gris 2009
N:Varietal and up-front wild green and bosc pear then hints of white fleshed fruits and a little white pepper spice. Alsace thoughts  come to mind with a moderate complexity and impression.
P: The very generous ripe fruit flavors and textures suggest a hint of residual sugar in this otherwise dry wine, the bright youthful acidity along with emerging apple suggestions fills the palate with tidy, stand alone wine that does not need food to show it off. Although  food with this wine would work wonderfully as well. 
4 Stars.
