Reviews

Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with a slight blush, near colourless on the edge. The nose is softly full and gently voluminous with aromas of yellow stonefruits, exotic florals and subtle notes of pears and honeysuckle unfolding to provide aromatic and lifted detail. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features soft aromatic fruit flavours of yellow stonefruits, exotic florals, pears and honeysuckle which build to form a positive heart. The mouthfeel is soft and rounded with gentle acidity and the wine flows along a fine-textured line, leading to an aromatic, but dry finish with lifted florals. This is a soft, aromatic, off-dry Pinot Gris with exotic flavours and fine, rounded mouthfeel.
17.5/20 points

RAYMOND CHAN

The wine is elegantly fragrant on the nose displaying poached pear, rockmelon, mandarin and floral characters. It is juicy and beautifully fruited on the palate with lovely weight and silky texture, finishing long and smooth. The wine offers lovely pristine fruit flavours backed by refreshing acidity, making it instantly appealing.

Winemaker's notes

Lovely citrus & ripe pear notes are matched with hints of exotic spice. The palate is textural & lively with racy acidity balanced by a long mineral finish.
