This wine has a floral and complex but persistent bouquet; the nose is blooming with fragrance of nashi pear, jonagold apple, tangelo zest and freshly dried goji berries. A potpourri blend of floral and fruit aroma’s, with layers of sweet spices to the finish. The colour is light golden straw - Gris, meaning grey in French, refers to the colour of the grapes; as wines made from Pinot Gris often have a slight coppery hue. The palate is generous, full bodied and dry, with long flavoursome fruits arising from the natural skin tannins - typical of the variety and winemaking style. An ideal wine to serve with Italian style antipasto, oven roasted turkey or other white game meats, chicken liver and brandy pate, risottos or grilled seafood.
