PG/21 - Pinot Gris

Informative and delicious in the same mouthful.

We know wine can be transcendent, and after initial bursts of freshness, our Pinot Gris is all about the funk and soul.

We say it's like the Muhammad Ali of Pinot Gris. Floats like a butterfly. stings like a bee. Our 2021 release is raw, textural, stylish. Looking youthful initially, in time we know it's all about the funk.

In classic Gris style, you get loads of Nashi pear and white peach. Taking its cue from the faint hue of orange/grey from extended skin contact, you get Earl Grey tea and a hint of nutmeg.

It's crunchy acid line punctuates how dry and austere the palate presents, all while the flavour profile gives and gives and gives.
