“Very attractive, fresh apples and peaches with poached pears and oranges on the palate. Bold, fleshy and juicy style here. Drink now. Screw cap.” – James Suckling

“Tense, youthful, spicy, fresh, varietal and enticing wine. Flavours of firm green pear, red apple, honeysuckle and quince. A layer of white spice and fleshy white nectarine add depth and charm. Off-dry with contrasting acidity adding weight and flesh to the texture. Lengthy finish, a lovely wine, well made and delicious. Best drinking from today and through 2022.” – Cameron Douglas MS

Tasting Note: Pear, lime zest, almond, and mandarin on the nose accentuated by an intense mineral character. A very aromatic Pinot Gris with a distinctive creamy texture from a notably warmer growing season. The palate exudes delicious fruit flavours including many types of pear, white peach and citrus. We see riper citrus appearing in this vintage with a wonderful hint of orange. A richly textured midpalate is complimented by a vibrant vein of acidity that gives the wine great length. Our Pinot Gris is great for food pairing but also delicious on its own and very ageworthy.” – Winery notes
