Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

Bright, even, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is a little shy in expression but gently fills with aromas of white stone fruits with savoury stone fruit kernels at the core and suggestions of fresh nutty elements. This unfolds a chalky minerality with aeration and shows good presence. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of white stone fruits, pears and florals form a moderately concentrated, rounded heart with good drive and line. The mouthfeel is soft-textured with integrated acidity, and the wine flows with presence leading to a restrained, subtle finish. This is a moderately concentrated dry Pinot Gris with stone fruit, pear and floral flavours on a rounded core with good weight.

Mineral and dried-pineapple aromas follow through to medium to full body. Creamy texture and fruity finish. Crisp and easy.
