FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "offering terrific drinking"
Starborough must now be considered one of our finest pinot gris producers and this is a sublime, off-dry expression that delivers a textbook example of this enticing varietal. Every year this release seems to get better and better and the 2022 is in banging form with layer after layer of tangy pear and ripe stone fruit flavours. Very highly recommended.
The winery writes "An elegant wine with a finely concentrated palate displaying aromatic white and yellow stonefruits lifted by exotic florals, rose-petal elements and complex nutty and flinty nuances. The wine shows excellent fruit intensity and silky texture, leading to a lingering smooth finish".
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Elegant and delightfully appealing, the wine shows Asian pear, crunchy apple, subtle spice and floral aromas on the nose, followed by a beautifully weighted palate delivering succulent fruit flavours with supple texture, offering terrific drinking."
Lovely off dry Pinot Gris. Better than the previous vintage in my opinion.
