Colour

Brilliant light straw-yellow colour with some green hues, pale on rim

Aroma

The nose is soft and elegant with aromas of yellow stonefruits, exotic florals and honeysuckle, revealing suggestion of minerally lees with aeration. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has fresh and gently luscious flavours of yellow stonefruits and honeysuckle along with nuances of exotic florals.

Ageing Potential

Match with Asian cuisine over the next 3+ years.

Palate

Rounded in the mouth, this has a good core underlined by subtle phenolic textures. The acidity is ripe and integrated, enhancing the smooth flow, and the wine carries to a gently honied finish. This is a softly fresh, off-dry Pinot Gris with luscious stonefruit, honeysuckle and floral flavours on a gently textured, smooth-flowing palate.

Winemaking
