Overview

This wine is mostly sourced from vines that were planted back in 1996, on our vineyards located in the Tamar Valley and Pipers Brook wine regions. The full flavour ripeness of fruit grown on the West Tamar is balanced by the natural high and flavoursome malic acidity found in the Pipers Brook region that provides structure to a tight, refreshing and complex pinot gris style.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Copper, bronze with light golden straw - Gris, meaning grey in French, refers to the colour of the grapes; wines made from Pinot Gris often have a slight coppery hue.

Aroma

Complex, with a lovely depth of aroma, the nose is blooming with fragrant pear, jonagold apple, tangelo zest and freshly dried goji berries. A hint of jasmine and gardenia potpourri blends the aroma, finishing with subtle notes of nutmeg and cinnamon spice.

Palate

The palate is generous, full bodied and dry with flavoursome poached pears in honey, apple strudel, paw-paw and goji berry fruits, that entice the palette, all combined with a sweet ginger and cinnamon spice that gives richness to a fine chalky, mineral dryness on the finish, arising from the natural skin tannins - typical of the variety and winemaking style.

Ageing potential

2014 to 2018 with likely best year, 2015.

Food Matching

An ideal wine to serve with Italian style antipasto, oven roasted turkey or other white game meats, chicken liver and brandy pate, risottos, grilled seafood, or an array of Asian and Mediterranean style dishes.
