This Pinot Gris features ripe peach, nectarine and Nashi pear aromas, heralding a vibrantly fruity off-dry palate.
This combined with a very long, zesty finish complements rich or light seafood meals or most Asian-spiced cuisine, though its extraordinary versatility should be experienced over a wide range of dishes.
This wine is drinking very well now and is expected to mellow over the next 3-4 years.
An excellent season compared to the rest of the country, good yields off of their own blocks and low disease pressure
