"The 2019 Pinot Gris is reasonably full-bodied and rich. Despite having only three grams per liter of residual sugar, it tastes almost off-dry, with flavors of baked pear and apple spiced with hints of ginger, cinnamon and white pepper. Complex in aroma and flavor, round and pleasurable in the mouth and lingering on the finish, it's a fine effort." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Tasting Notes:
Pale straw. NOSE Enticing aromas of stone fruit, Packham pear and zesty grapefruit are combined with delicate floral notes and hints of freshly toasted nuts. PALATE A lovely textural wine with stone fruit flavours of apricot and nectarine. Essences of Packham pear are layered over subtle warmed butter and nut characters derived from the partial wild ferment and yeast lees ageing which also imparts a richness that carries through to a lingering dry finish.

Winemaker Notes:
A snazzy little people-pleaser, our Pinot Gris is designed to freshen and delight. I get on well with Pinot Gris because she’s adaptable - Jules

Food Pairing Notes:
Packham pear, blue cheese and crushed walnuts on a bed of Mesclun or pan-fried salmon with fennel hearts pan-fried in garlic butter.
