Description

"A gorgeous wine, the elegantly fragrant bouquet shows white stone fruit, rockmelon, fresh pear and jasmine characters, followed by a succulent palate that is bright and expressive. The wine displays fine texture and rounded mouthfeel, with a touch of sweetness backed by bright acidity, finishing long and juicy. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2017

"Bright, very pale straw colour, near colourless on the edge. The nose is softly fresh with restrained aromas of white stonefruits and pears, along with subtle notes of exotic white florals and pears with suggestions of honeysuckle. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a refined and elegantly concentrated core of white stonefruits and white florals, and nuances of pears and honeysuckle. The mouthfeel is refreshing with a fine, firm line of light phenolic textures and integrated acidity. The fine flows along a taut core, leading to a dry, aromatic finish. This is a taut, refined dry Pinot Gris with a core of white stonefruits and pears with fragrant florals. Match with mild Asian fare over the next 3 years" Raymond Chan, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, Dec 2017 

"Dry, fresh pinot gris with subtle citrus and tree fruit flavours, together with a strong influence of root ginger from contact with the yeast lees. Impressive purity and a great balance" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Dec 2017

This luscious, refreshing, off-dry wine is bright and clear with a pale golden hue. The bouquet had lifted aromas of melon and pear. The palate is layered with white peach and citrus flavours and finishes with a great length and richness of flavour.

The grapes were whole bunched pressed to tank and held cold for 24 hours before being racked and warmed to allow fermentation to begin. The wine was inoculated with yeast selected to enhance aromatics. The wine was fermented cool to build flavour and fermentation allowed to continue until the balance of the wine was where it was desired and was then stopped.
