In the Pinot Gris and Chenin Blanc line-up, this was certainly a highlight. In the bone dry style, this has flavour density to mask its 14% ABV. Pale gold. Creamy, leesy entry. Greengage and just-ripe apple aromatics. Flinty mineral touches. Rich, but restrained on the palate. Creamy, buttery greengage and apple fruit again on the palate, but with a tightly wound chalky mineral core. Intense flavour. Focused, clean and refreshing.
