Aromas of quince and ripe pear along with delicate florals and hints of beeswax all contribute to a quintessential Pinot gris. The flavours are also of quince/yellow peach and pear with an obvious minerality, touches of beeswax and, as Katy insists, even crushed blanched almonds. While the first impression of this wine is that of power, it does not seem to have sacrificed clarity of flavour or poise and already displays delightful subtleties in flavour. Expect it to have longevity and be aware that early drinking of wines such as this does sacrifice the varietal rewards that even moderate bottle age can bring.
