Overview

The palate is generous, full bodied and dry with flavoursome baked apple pie, marmalade, nectarine and lady finger bananas. The mouth feel is awash with refreshing lemon/lime citrus flavours, which entice and lengthen the palate. All combined with a sweet ginger and cinnamon spice that gives richness to the fine chalky, mineral dryness of the finish. All arising from the natural skin tannins and flavour in the skins - typical of the variety and of our winemaking style.

Expert Reviews

The bright red fruits of this wine are dominated by lavish oak-handling, assuredly of the highest quality; however, the palate tells the true story, with liqueur cherry, clove and a perceptible ironstone character; treads the line between sweet fruit and savoury complexity with aplomb, and will deliver real pleasure when the oak further integrates with the fruit. Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Coppery bronze, with a light tinge of yellow gold - gris, meaning grey in French, refers to the colour of the grapes; wines made from pinot gris where skin maceration has been used during the winemaking process often leads to the wine showing a slight coppery hue.

Aroma

Floral and complex with a fine persistent aroma, the nose is blooming with fragrance, peel fruit zest, dried figs and freshly dried goji berries. A hint of jasmine and gardenia potpourri blends the aroma, finishing with subtle notes of sweet ginger spice.

Palate

The palate is generous, full bodied and dry with flavoursome baked apple pie, marmalade, nectarine and lady finger bananas. The mouth feel is awash with refreshing lemon/lime citrus flavours, which entice and lengthen the palate.

All arising from the natural skin tannins and flavour in the skins - typical of the variety and of our winemaking style.

Food Matching

An ideal wine to serve with Italian style antipasto, oven roasted turkey or other white game meats, yabby pate, Alsatian Onion Tart, risottos or grilled seafood. Try it with salad of smoked chicken, beetroot, watercress and walnut oil dressing, or an array of Asian and Mediterranean style dishes.
