As with most of our Pinot gris, this is light in colour as a young wine and has a peachy/walnut and slightly floral nose typical of the variety. It is a big, weighty wine with a soft, creamy texture, and mineral as well as stone fruit and walnut flavours on the palate. (This mineral character seems to be a common theme in a number of 1995 whites.) Pinot gris is clearly different from Chardonnay but can fill a similar role for matching with food. It can be drunk young, but in my view this is wasteful of a wine that can deliver so much by way of complexity and interest when it is mature. Cellar for 3-4+ years depending on cellar conditions, and follow our Spring Cellar Notes.
