    Review:  92 Points, Premium wine, by Cameron Douglas MS. 

     

    Tasting Notes:

     

    Sight:  Light straw with a gold hue and a bright clarity.

     

    Smell:  Fresh with aromas of fleshy, ripe pear and white nectarine then scents of honeysuckle and white spice.

     

    Taste:  A dry wine on the palate with a core of ripe tree fruit flavours, some more honeysuckle then apple. The mouthfeel has a satin texture carried along with acidity and youthful freshness from the fruit flavours.

     

    Pairing:  Serve this Pinot Gris with pork, chicken or a broad range of vegetarian dishes.

     

    Cellaring:  Drinking beautifully now and through to 2024.
