Description

"Sweet Pinot Gris with wonderfully pure apricot, tree fruit, mandarin zest, honey and clove/anise flavours. Powerful wine with an appealing and ethereal texture. A lovely combination of varietal flavours intensified and flattered with botrytis influence. Drink now until 2021" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine

"Botrytised Pinot Gris fruit fermented in stainless-steel, with a small portion of the normal Pinot Gris wine blended after, resulting in 11.23%alc. and 150 g/L RS. Bright, light, golden-yellow colour, lighter on rim. The bouquet is voluminous and densely packed with aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits, wild honey, nuts and caramel, with layers of dried fruits and marmalade becoming revealed. Very sweet, flavours of ripe stonefruits, citrusfruit, honey and marmalade show with presence and weight. Nuts and caramel elements add to the interest. The palate is near unctuous and rounded in mouthfeel, with a luscious richness. The flavours are guided by a soft acid drive and background textures, the phenolics extremely well-handled.The sweetness is a feature on the finish with lingering notes of wild honey and nuts. This botrytised sweet Pinot Gris has subtle flavours, but a near-unctuous,rich mouthfeel. Match with baked and caramel desserts over the next 4-6 years. 250 dozen made. (375 ml)" Raymond Chan

"Very sexy and golden in the glass, with a glossy yellow diamond colour, there’s an instant 'I want that now!' desire as soon as you see it poured.  Aromas of honey, beeswax and musk lead to roast quince, peach and pear on the palate.  The acidity is refreshing and balances out the intense natural sweetness in this luscious, luxurious wine" Yvonne Lorkin, March 2017

Immediately exotic, this wine is pungent and complex, offering orange marmalade, honey, spice and dried apricot aromas. Although it is sweet, the vibrant acidity balances the sweetness perfectly and keeps it from being cloying. This is a concentrated wine with a long and lingering finish
