Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria
Pale straw in colour with green tints. There are delicious aromas of alpine strawberry, Granny Smith apple, peppercorn, notes of buttered toast, preserved lemon and the subtle hints of rose water. Elegantly structured, this wine shows outstanding Pinot Gris precision with delicate flavours of white pear, preserved lemon and spice. The layered creamy texture is balanced by an underlying core of chalky minerality and persistent fruit flavour.
Enjoy now for a crisper style or wait a couple of years if you like Pinot Gris with more fresh and richness. Serve with chicken salad with white nectarine, crisp croutons, grilled prosciutto and a balsamic glaze or a dessert of baked cheesecake, poached quinces and a generous dollop of King Island cream.
