Grown over three different blocks at our Blue Rock Vineyard.
“Clear and bright appearance, pale straw colour with a nice youthful greenish tinge. Pear and apricot tart-like aromatics with a lashing of vanilla pod, some subtle baking spices at work here too; cardamon, a dusting of cinnamon and a shake of powdered ginger. Very concentrated mid palate and quite a full bodied and powerful wine. It has density of flavour with a creamy texture and considerable phenolic weight. Probably my favourite feature is the very moreish and quite ‘peachy’ tasting sherbet like acidity.
A pretty serious expression of Pinot Gris here, and so it should be! Really ripe fruit, plenty of skin contact and barrel ferment. Delicious now but will certainly develop well over a couple of years.” - Joel Watson, Winemaker
