Winemaker Notes
Quite simply, the best fruit we have ever picked off the vineyard at the winery! One of the three blocks is now approaching 20 years old, and the age of these vines, along with the great weather during the growing period, has given us fruit with the ripeness, depth of flavor, and chemical structure to reward immediate drinking or medium-term cellaring. Tank fermentation and a period of lees contact have produced a wine that has Pinot Gris’ wonderful transparency, accompanied by glorious weight and texture.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Pale gold, with onion skins tints. Bouquet: Subtle, yet exotic. A melange of apple, pear, a touch of earthiness and a pinch of spice. Palate: Medium in body, with an exceptional balance between fruit sweetness and acidity. The finish is long, spicy and textural.
Cellaring
Delicious drunk young and fresh, but will gain further depth and complexity over the medium-term .
Food Matching
This wine will be suitable with fish, white meats and salads

Independent Reviews
“Already drinking well, this pale orange wine is mouthfilling, with very good depth of stonefruit and spice flavours, a hint of ginger and a moderately firm, dry finish.” Michael Cooper, May 2021
