Distinctive pure fruited bouquet of Gris with aromas of D'Anjou pear, apple, a hint of quince and gentle pear-skin spice layer; attractive and alluring. Just dry on the palate with a gentle creamy texture from a whisper of residual sugar; the acidity kicks in quickly to add contrast and texture as well as freshness. Flavours reflect the nose with a lush and fleshy tree fruits & some white stone fruit notes. Lengthy finish with a light spice note. 94 Points

At its best, this estate-grown wine is weighty, rich and rounded. Hand-harvested and lees-aged, it is made in an off-dry style. The 2017 vintage is mouthfilling, with a fragrant bouquet of pears and spices. Still youthful, it is strongly varietal, with good intensity of lively pear, lychee and spice flavours, dryish and finely balanced. Best drinking 2019+.
