Winemaker's Notes

Very pretty Pinot Gris – physiologically ripe with very low sugar. The wine is more Germanic in style and structure – there is a slight sweetness backed with intense acidity – making it a perfect by the glass wine and a great accompaniment with seafood and spicy Asian cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

"This has searing acidity like a Rulander from Germany. Medium body, with mineral and sliced apple character. Savory. Very intense. Needs smoked fish! Stylish and intense. Some may not like the powerful acidity, but fascinating. Drink now."

Sorry, but this one did not live up to the description. Dominate scent and taste of freshly cut hay. Nearly unbearable by itself and not musch better with food. First dud in some time.
