★★★★½ Bob Campbell
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, paler on edge. The nose is light and tightly held with aromas of white stonefruits and nutty notes along with savoury lees elements and reductive nuances adding a layer of interest. White florals and fresh herbs emerge with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate possesses gently rich flavours of savoury stonefruits along with subtle nutty and lees complexities, unfolding floral aromatic elements. The mouthfeel is soft and rounded with underlying acidity lending energy. The wine carries with some alcohol drive to a slender finish of stonefruits and nuts. This is a gently rich, dry Pinot Gris with savoury stonefruit flavours and nutty lees detail and positive drive and line. Serve with most white meat dishes and Mediterranean fare over the next 3 years. Fruit tank-fermented to 13.8% alc. and 3.3 g/L RS, with 40% aged in French oak undergoing batonnage.
