About This Wine:
This wine has a scintillating youthful colour with bright and intense shades of pale green, pistachio, lime tree and primrose yellows.
The dense and fetching legs have a silvery sparkle.
It has a powerful balanced aroma, youthfully reserved and sensitive.
Well balanced and fresh odours of yellow peach, pear, Mirabelle, liquorice, fresh almond and acacia honey.
On the palate its feel is sophisticated, soft, velvet, full-flavoured with a pleasant vinosity which retains a sense of expressive and aromatic refinement that is beautifully prolonged with refreshing acidity.

This is a lovely Pinot Gris wine which still remains a bit young and well worth laying down. Keep it laid down for 3 to 6 years.
It can still be consumed now with sea or fresh water fish with freshwater shrimp or lobster sauce, or served with spiced dishes: lamb curry, red mullet in turmeric, monkfish in saffron. With some ageing it will become an ideal companion for poultry, pheasant or other white meat dishes. Veal chops with wild mushrooms, game-bird terrine or duck foie gras.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Bright straw. Rich aromas and flavors of lychee, baked apple, orange peel and aromatic herbs. Juicy and ripe; the long, vibrant finish offers a hint of residual sweetness. Still a little closed, but this will likely improve further with another year or two in the bottle. About 70% bought and 30% estate grapes. I like this." - Ian D'Agata (Jan 2019)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Lithe and juicy, this well-balanced Pinot Gris is backed by sleek acidity that focuses the flavors of melon, pickled ginger, star fruit and mineral. Clean-cut finish. Drink now through 2023. 2,500 cases made." – AN (Dec 31, 2018)
