Our 2018 Pinot Gris has aromas of Turkish delight, fresh roses, honey suckle, and ripe stone fruit. Tropical fruit and nectarine flavours lead into rich textural complexities and a ginger bread spice. The wine finishes with a luscious and lingering acidity.

“Wonderfully fruited and succulent, this comforting pinot gris shows lifted aromas of white flesh stone fruit, fresh pear, floral and subtle spice on the nose, leading to a beautifully rounded palate that is smooth and refreshing. It is filled with attractive flavours and offers fabulous drinking”. Sam Kim Reviews Aug-18
18/20 & 4 Stars: Raymond Chan Reviews Aug-18
“Brilliant pale straw-yellow with some depth and lemon hues, light on the rim. The nose is fresh with a good, soft, rounded core of bright white and yellow stonefruits along with exotic florals, and nuances of honeysuckle and minerals. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has an elegant heart of white and yellow stonefruits with floral detail and delicate layers of honeysuckle and hints of minerals. The flavours are balanced and harmonious. The fruit flows along a fresh, finely-textured line with background acidity carrying the wine to an elegant finish. This is an elegant off-dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral, honey and mineral flavours and a soft-textured line”.
