Let this pear flesh-coloured wine take you on a journey. If you are not familiar with Pinot Gris, be surprised and open minded, and hopefully rewarded. All grapes are sourced from our Dry River Estate vineyard with the majority from our first planted vines in 1979. It is our rootstock, clone and late maturity that sets this wine style apart from many others as a rich and luscious wine without compromise.
Beautiful complex aromas greet the nose with brioche, crème brulée, rock melon and honeycomb, followed by stone fruit, ripe pears, mango and quince. The palate is classic Dry River Pinot Gris, transparent, dense with a broad ‘gourmand’ mouthfeel and a light acidity to balance out some sweetness. The wine spreads fast through the mouth, coating the palate with high impact and finely textured tannins.
The wine can be enjoyed now, but will improve over the next five years.
