The labels feature original artwork from renowned West Australian artist Andy Quilty.
There is a glint of salmon pink within the green-tinged straw colour of this wine, highlighting some fleeting skin contact during pressing. A reticent nose opens gradually to reveal pear flesh and skin, guava, grapefruit and orange peel aromas.
On the palate there is a welcoming hit of fresh fruit cradled in tingling acidity which exercises the salivary glands as the wine caresses the sides of the tongue. There is weight and texture which carries and mingles the fruit flavours observed on the nose and allows time for complexing hints of just ripe strawberry and white pepper to emerge, before a clean and well-balanced finish.
A satisfying expression of the variety which conveys the potential for superb Pinot Gris to be grown in the Great Southern.
Enjoy alongside King George Whiting ceviche.
