94 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
This wine is multi-layered expressing luscious aromatics of ripe pear and nectarine with a hint of mace spice. These lively flavours are integrated with barrel influenced components delivering a spicy and nutty palate with length and depth.
A plush and richly textured Pinot Gris with nuances of pear, quince, apricot and nuttiness. This wine is full on the palate but retains the characteristic freshness associated with this region and the Estate.
The winery writes "A wide picking window allowed us to pick some fruit early which presented a juicy and crunchy pear/red apple profile showing minerality coupled with bright acidity. A later pick saw concentrated poached pear with a touch of ginger and spice from a portion of barrel fermentation to add depth of flavour. A beautifully pure yet complex pinot gris"
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Varietal and pure fruited bouquet with scents of fresh green pear and crisp red apple, there’s a saline mineral quality with an oyster shell and stony soil quality. Floral, youthful and bright. Equally engaging on the palate with flavours of white spice and white fleshed fruits then mineral. The texture is fine and satin-like with contrasting acidity and core fruit flavours. Balanced, taut, youthful and well made."
