Dry, but certainly not austere, pinot gris with green apple, toast and cashew nut flavours. The wine has an appealing weight and almost chewy mouth-feel plus a lingering finish.

      Tasting Notes and Description
      Low cropped Pinot Gris displaying all the allure and none of the flab. It strikes us as evoking the Pinot Gris from Alsace. It is carefully handled to ensure the natural richness of the grapes retains elegance and subtlety.

      In the glass a pale yellow with a defined crystal brilliance. The nose exhibits delicate white fruit with a touch of wild ginger. 100% wild yeast ferment adds a feeling of viscosity and contributes to the overall focus.

      On the palate it is complex, bright, with just the right amount of refreshing weight and flow across the palate and a touch of phenolics at the end keeps the whole package in check. Full and satisfying.

      Pinot Gris in the right hands produces a wine of grace and ageability. It is a superb companion to foods from most continents. Great with Thai green curry, a fantastic match to a ripe Époisses cheese or roast pork sitting over a pan of apples and star anise.

      And on a final note we like it chilled at 5.30pm. On its own.

      "The nose is soft and elegant in expression unfolding layers of detail with white and yellow stone fruits, pears, hints of honeysuckle, nuances of exotic florals and subtle flinty, minerally and nutty notes. This has finesse and piquancy and grows in depth and concentration with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a very refined, concentrated, but rounded core with flavours of white stone fruits along with an amalgam of pears, white florals and subtle, flinty, mineral and nutty detail. The fruit has vitality and is enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity, and the wine flows with excellent energy along a soft-textured line, leading to a taut, lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, refined, but intense off-dry Pinot Gris with vibrant, detailed flavours of stone fruits, pears, florals and minerals on a lively palate.
