The fruit characters are beautifully expressed in this appealing Pinot Gris, displaying gentle aromas of pear, ripe citrus and stone fruits. The succulent palate shows a hint of sweetness which is well countered by the bright acidity, leaving the palate refreshed and mouth-watering. 87 points, ««««Stars

Bright, pale straw-yellow, clear on rim, the nose has finely presented, intense aromas of spicy pears with perfumed florals and hints of minerals. Off-dry to taste, this has attractively pure flavours of white stonefruits and florals, along with balanced, refreshing acidity which provides excellent focus and poise. Subtle richness and a smooth texture enhances the depth of fruit which leads to a honied finish with good length. «««« Stars
