94 Points "Pinot Gris of this calibre is exceedingly rare, particularly at this price. It has delightful complexity of fresh pear, baked apple, honey and cloves and – crucially perfect poise, zesty structure, driving minerality and great persistence." Wine Business Monthly, Tyson Stelzer (Australia), May 2009
"…it’s attractive ... It drinks well. It’s flush with lively, almost sweet, pear and nectarine-like flavours and there’s even the odd, attractive note of old honeycomb. It’s not especially long but neither is it short. This is good. " www.winefront.com.au, Campbell Mattinson (Australia), 20 Feb 09
"…a refreshing citrus/honeysuckle flavoured drop from Victoria’s Beechworth region." Sunday Telegraph, John Fordham (Australia), 08 Mar 09
Winery Tasting Notes
The pale yellow/green hue of this wine belies its varietal nature.
Lifted floral and ester characters dominate the aroma with a background hint of musk.
The palate is well balance at 13.5% alcohol and shows good concentration of citrus and honeysuckle flavours. The subtle phenolics add length and weight providing persistence and depth to the palate. Fine acid ensures a clean finish.
While some Northern hemisphere examples age well, this wine is best consumed over the short term.
