Crunchy, fresh classic.
From 34-year-old hand harvested vines, the 2020 Estate Cuvee Pinot Gris was fermented and then aged six months sur-lie in stainless steel and neutral oak barrel, and foudre before bottling.
I prefer the 2020 over the more oak encumbered 2019.
Here, notes of crunchy green pears, wet stone, green almonds, candle wax, lemon zest and straw flowers lead to a tangy and dry palate. Snappy white fruits and bracing citrus flavours dominate. It's a classic with attractive weight and long racy finish.
