Incredible skin contact Gris - amazing to see such quality at the price. Briny tang, high acidity, minerals, stone fruit, citrus, and a touch of spice. Fruity and elegant. Subtle orange and honeyed notes mixed with spices making it wonderfully seductive. Winemaker and viticulturist Shashi Singh has been a vigneron on the Mornington Peninsula for the last 15 years. From 2005 to 2012 Shashi worked closely with Phillip Jones from Bass Phillip Wines in assisting him in crafting some of the best ever vintages of Bass Phillip. "Amrit is the outstanding Avani wines ‘second label’, but that’s downplaying things. It’s a side project, one could say, non-estate fruit, but carefully selected, sustainably grown, and then vinified on the home farm. There are two pinot gris under this label, one that sees some judicious skin contact (this one) and one that evidently gets time on lees and barrel but not the same maceration. They are both outstanding, if not, in Australia’s leading sect for this fascinating variety." Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
