This Pinot Gris is a pale straw, lemon in colour, and highly aromatic; with spicy, ripe pears, peaches and nectarines and also lovely florals, even delicate old roses, on the nose. On the palate the myriad of spices continue, notably a lovely cinnamon twist. It is delightfully crisp and refreshing with mouth crunching pears and stone fruit. Overall, it is very clean, crisp and enticing with a long lingering, elegant finish. This wine promises to develop considerable complexity and appeal with careful bottle ageing.
