The Wine: Grown by the Innes family at Littlehampton in the Adelaide Hills, this Pinot Gris is fermented in stainless steel and held in tank on lees for 6 months with regular stirring to build texture and complexity. Pale gold with green hues. Fragrant aromas of white flowers, citrus blossom, stone fruits and nashi pear, with hints of rose petal, ginger, tarragon and white pepper. A beautifully intense palate of fresh nectarine, white peach and pear, balanced by a bright line of acidity and a creamy texture for a long and crisp finish.
The Review: Andrew Caillard MW, The Vintage Journal - 92pts "Fresh apple, pearskin, flinty aromas with hits of tropical fruit. Well concentrated fleshy wine with generous apple, ripe pear flavours, fine slinky textures and integrated fresh acidity. Finishes minerally and long with hints of aniseed. Very good varietal definition and creamy freshness."
