Winery Note

"The wine is rich, but remains finely structured and beautifully balanced. Pinot Gris from the Lismore block always achieves optimum flavours later in the season. As a result,the grapes are pickedrelatively late to achieve a wine closer to the richer style of Pinot Gris made famous in the Alsace region of France, rather than the leaner, generally bone-dry 'Pinot Grigio' version, popular in the north of Italy.

From vines now over 23 years of age, the depth and complexity of flavour make it one of our favourite food and wine matching choices, especially for anything with heady spice and/or challenging flavours. Fermented in neutral barrels for extra texture, this Pinot Gris will benefit from bottle age. Exotic aromas of guava and pink grapefruit, blend with pineapple and apple strudel. The palate is smooth and velvety with flavours of nutmeg, lemon custard and hints of beeswax. The finish has a citrus pith, textural feel that keeps it fresh, with pastry savoury notes"
