Description

When Jeff Poole was recently down in Marlborough visiting the Greywacke winery he got wind that there was a tiny amount (70 dozen) of 2011 Pinot Gris hiding in the back of their cellar. naturally a person to never let an opportunity pass Jeff didn't give up until Kevin Judd had agreed to release the library stock exclusively to FWD Co. Now at 7 years of age the luscious Pinot Gris is drinking beautifully with honeycombed notes of apricot and nectarine starting to appear, the wine still has great structure and balance and offers an impressive drinking experience this summer and through to at least 2020.

Smells

Highly aromatic with white florals sitting above honeycomb, baked nectarine and poached apricot.

Tastes

Unctuous, slightly viscous and very decadent with sweetened notes of ripe tropical fruit, apple pie and baking spice. This is impressively made Pinot Gris that is in its prime and offers immaculate drinking through to 2020+
