Aroma: Pear-drop, melons and honey. Ripe citrus shows through, while notes of oats and nuts sit in the background. The warm vintage has also produced a subtle cinnamon spice character.
Palate: The bright pear-drop and ripe citrus characters are the main flavours, very typical of the variety and vineyard sites. The structure shows mouth-filling grip and richness typical of this full bodied Pinot Gris style.
This concentrated wine will reward patience and optimum drinking will be from 3-7 years from vintage date.
