Fresh Nashi pears, apples and pickled ginger on the nose with notes of apple crumble
and jasmine flowers. The palate offers crunchy texture with zingy, racy acidity, lime zest,
Granny Smith apples and fresh celery hearts. Notes of crushed Kaffir lime leaves and
honeydew finish with cold slate and minerals. Ideal with sashimi, freshly shucked oysters
and fresh goat's curd brushetta.
"Light straw-green; has above-average weight and palate richness, well into true gris territory, the overall balance good."
Australian Wine Companion
"Comprised of around 7 different vineyards, the 2009 Pinot Gris is fermented using 50% wild yeast, mainly in tanks though 20% old oak is also used. It has subtle aromas of peaches and golden delicious apples with some capers in there and a pinch of white pepper. With a medium-full body and medium acid, this wine has a nice viscosity in the mouth and a long finish. Drink it now to 2013.
The Wine Advocate
"Marked by modest apple and pear fruit on the nose, this a fairly richly textured but dry example of Pinot Gris. It's not the most complex winer, but it fills the mought with ripe tree fruits and a slightly warm finish. Drink now."
