Description

Note from winemaker Wilco Lam: "Our Pinot gris vines planted at Dry River provide a consistency, depth and character unlike most of our other wines. Here it shows the heavier aromatics to symbolise its deep foundation through vanilla, toffee, dulce de leche and ripe pears. Fresh characters like melon, fennel and honey suckle bring lightness and are likely to reflect fruit from our younger pinot gris block.

An overwhelming sensation of grace and serenity hit us when tasting this wine for the first time after blending. Comforting and luscious, the gentle nature is like a welcome home wine, if you don't mind the sweetness of the residual sugar. Its translucent and timid character make it rich and buoyant without the bling factor. The creamy fluffy textural element is that of a groomed gruffness, presumably from the time on lees in barrel, with hints of liquorice root and rock melon. Our Pinot gris gives drinking pleasure as a young wine, but is rewarding with time in your cellar - preferably five to seven years."
