Made just like Chardonnay, this is a complex and textural Gris, full of savoury, yeast-derived notes of charcuterie and struck flint. It strikes the right balance between pear and apple fruit and the crunch of refreshing acidity. Rating 94 - Tyson Stelzer, WBM (NOV/2013)
Light straw-green; quite obviously, a lot of winemaking has gone into this; oak and solids juice just for starters; juicy lemon, pear, pear drop and spice all jostle for space. Rating 93 - James Halliday, Austalian Wine Companion 2014
Crafted with more obvious winemaking on show- wild yeast, barrel fermentation, grape solids allowed to settle and add complexity to the juice – the result is a beurre bosc pear note, rather than green and crunchy. There’s definite spice and texture, and a most satisfying style that has a bit of body in the mix. Tony Love, TASTE, Herald Sun, September 24, 2013
Winery Tasting Notes
Warm straw colour.
The nose is youthful and pretty with suggestions of dried apple, caramelised citrus, sweet almond blossom, fresh hay and a discreet complex sulphide element providing savoury context.
In the mouth the wine moves with linearity and a nashi fruit juiciness, tempered with a softly talcy phenolic texture to length.
