Pale straw with a light green hue. This cool climate Pinot Gris has an attractive floral perfume with ripe citrus fruit aromas including fresh cut pear, nectarine and orange zest. There is added spiciness and subtle honey aromas adding further complexity and character. The palate displays varietal citrus and pear flavours within a soft and supple structure. There is good varietal definition with a generous mouthfeel and a lingering, dry finish. CELLARING: This Pinot Gris has been made to enjoy over the next 18 months while the flavours are young and fresh.
