PG/18 - Pinot Gris
DO YOU FOLLOW TRENDS, OR SET THEM?
WE PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF STYLE. EXPERIMENTING, REFINING AND MAKING PINOT GRIS THAT'S INFORMATIVE AND DELICIOUS IN THE SAME MOUTHFUL.
It's like the Muhammad Ali of Pinot Gris. Float like a butterfly. Sting like a bee. We know wine can be transcendent, and after initial bursts of freshness, our Pinot Gris is all about the funk and soul.
Taking its cue from the faint hue of orange/grey from extended skin contact, the aromas of poached pear and peach jump straight out of the glass. In the mouth the stone fruits are there, with cinnamon and vanilla pod spice, building generosity as it unfurls.
IF YOU'VE GOT YOUR OWN STYLE, EXPRESS YOURSELF.
