On Giants' Shoulders Pinot Gris

Current Vintage 2016 -

Raymond Chan – 17.5/20

"Bright golden-hued straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim.  The nose is fresh and gently full with aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, along with hints of creamy barrel-ferment, and a nutty lees and oak amalgam adding richness and interest.  This has delicacy and vibrancy.  Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has finely concentrated but restrained flavours of white and yellow stonefruits with light notes of lees and oak.  The fruit forms a firm heart with light phenolic textures and balanced, lacy acidity.  The wine flows to a concentrated, stonefruited, nutty and minerally nuanced, lingering finish.  This is a fresh, finely concentrated dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit flavours and nutty lees and oak detail on a firm-lined, fine-textured palate".
