This is Pinot Gris at its absolute best. Made with a touch of skin contact, this actually looks more like a rosé in colour thanks to Pinot Gris' beautiful pink skin. An incredibly more-ish and expressive palate, bursting with notes of raspberry, bergamot and orange peel with a zing of kaffir lime on the finish. Though bursting with fruit, it's also incredibly serious with excellent complexity, weight and texture on the palate. A particularly good wine to enjoy with Thai food or aromatically spiced dishes, though sipped chilled in the sunshine works well too.
Is this what Pinot Gris does best? It’s a remarkable skin-contact Pinot Gris that’s a beautiful onion skin/coral colour. It has a unique colour! There’s a lovely rose petal edge to the nose which also shows some earl grey tea and a touch of red cherry. The palate is fresh with watermelon, spice, orange peel and a touch of mandarin, as well as some sweet cherry. Complex and layered with real purity and beauty to it. It’s still very fresh at almost three years old, with a real delicacy and a bit of structure, too. Distinctive and really beautiful.
