The wine is made in an interesting way with each juice parcel undergoing a different form of treatment such as malolactic fermentation, French oak and yeast lees. The final product is a blending of each of these parcels.
There is a distinct pinkish tinge to the bronze yellow colour.
The bouquet is quite light. Melon and spicy citrus notes. Not challenging aromatically.
However, it is the palate that stars here. Nashi pear, soft white peach, lemon rind and spice. Some florals with juicy and zesty acidity. Light-to-mid weight, silky and textured in the mouth with sweet spice fanning out on the finish.
It is interesting to question whether this wine is more Pinot Gris than Pint Grigio. To me, it is more textural than crisp, more unctuous than lean. Nevertheless, it's been well made the way it has and for a multiple award-winning wine, it is insane value for money.
