Grape: Pinot Gris
A rich and silky wine offering generous spice with hints of ripe pear and white peach. The soft acidity gives a concentration of richness on the palate following through to a lightly creamy textured finish. This is an elegant wine which has balance and power and will continue to age in a cellar for up to five years.
