FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Excellent Pinot Gris from an iconic producer. Off dry and bursting with peach and pear flavours and a tickle of spice, this gris has been partially barrel fermented to give a perfectly balanced wine. Highly recommended.
Sam Kim writes "Splendidly fruited and immediately appealing with rockmelon, poached pear, lemon peel and rich floral aromas on the nose. The palate offers terrific fruit flavours together with silky texture and refreshing acidity, making it elegantly flavoursome and delectably appealing."
The winery writes "Ripe handpicked fruit and gentle winemaking have given a wonderfully balanced wine. 36% of the juice was barrel fermented in older French oak barrels with the balance fermented in stainless steel tank. The wine shows delightful aromas of ripe pear, brioche and honeysuckle, with white peach, pear, spice and a hint of salted caramel on the palate. This off dry wine is best served slightly chilled."
