REVIEWS

“Varietal enticing bouquet of Gris with apple, pear and white fleshed fruits.  A soft white pepper layer and light lees and ginger note. Crisp and fruity with flavours that reflect the nose plus a touch of lemon and barley sugar. A dryish finish with flavours transitioning through white fleshed fruits into citrus and a hint of mineral.”
