"Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light golden tints, pale on the rim. The nose is fresh and full with vibrant, up-front and rich aromas of ripe yellow stone-fruits and hints of pear and honeysuckle harmoniously melded with complexing smoke, nutty lees and mineral elements. This has richness, intensity, detail and depth. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has bright and lively flavours of yellow stone-fruits with hints of pear, honeysuckle and exotic florals entwined with complex wet stone, nutty and minerally lees notes. The flavours are rich and near-succulent, and the palate possesses a degree of opulence. The fruit forms a fir, linear core, and the wine flows with positive drive, and integrated acidity leading to a lingering finish of stone-fruit and honeysuckle. This is a rich, up-front, medium-dry Pinot Gris with bold flavours of yellow stone-fruits and honeysuckle, with pear notes entwined with complex minerally lees on a positive, linear palate."

"A wide spectrum of aromatics from pear and white peach, citrus, quince and spice notes with an underlying minerality. These aromas are echoed on the palate, highlighted by crisp acidity and a long finish. The texture, freshness and concentrated aromatics mean that this wine will harmonize will with a wide range of dishes. Consider white meats, seafood and fish, the wine will also work well with mildly spiced dishes. This wine will reward careful cellaring over the next 5 - 7 years from vintage. "
