Mid straw in colour, this wine has both some fresh honey- dew melon aroma and baked quince depth.
The palate is rich with poached white peach fruit and some rosewater and ginger aromatics.
Full bodied but remarkably balanced in all its elements.

My opinion only of course but don’t expect the usual ‘pear’ characteristics with this Gris. They’ve been left on the bench. It’s very aromatic but softly so. This may not make sense but you’ll understand when you smell it. The palate is where it wants to tell you it’s all quality with some humility but it shouldn’t be so. It should shout about it’s star quality. Full bodied but unobtrusive, rich flavours but so approachable and balanced. Another great Pinot Gris from Bob & Rita.

Previous vintages of Grey Sands’ pinot gris have been acclaimed as the best in Australia. And this is as good as their previous best with its delicious savoury core, smooth creamy texture and a dry nutty finish that lingers for ages. A great one for the Christmas turkey.

2014 Pinot Gris is more like an Italian. Very reminiscent of the Gris from the Veneto. Pungent stone fruit on the nose, apricot and plum, with some higher spice notes (allspice, hint of cinnamon). A really nice long finish. It was very good with a risotto with smoked chicken and shiitake mushrooms.
