FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
THE PERRENIAL OVER ACHIEVER
Beach House have a proven track record with this varietal and it is always hugely popular with the Advintage Faithful. Sourced from pristine Ohiti Road fruit - a sub region known for producing outstanding Gris - this wine simply bursts with classic crushed pear and citrus flavours. Expect to be impressed.
Sam Kim writes "Fabulously fruited and fragrant, the inviting bouquet shows fresh pear, rockmelon, citrus and white floral aromas on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that is supple and persistent. Elegant and generous at the same time with charming fruit flavours, making it immensely appealing. At its best: now to 2022."
The winery writes: "This is a very pleasant and delicate Pinot Gris displaying interesting fruit characters such as pear, feijoa, fig and melon. There is also a distinct beeswax character present on both the nose and the palate. A touch of residual sugar imparts a lovely balance to this seamless wine."
I tried this at your Village Quaffers last night and it was by far my favourite of the night. Lovely and fruity.
