The wine has a glint of light greenish gold and a luscious but primary nose that will evolve as it develops bottle age. Aromas of fresh yellow peach, ripe pear and clover honey are lifted with a faint minerality. The palate is full and displays classic Pinot gris characters of yellow peach, sweet mandarin, quince jelly and an elusive delicate spice giving an exotic nuance to the long lingering finish. The palate is luscious, with a viscous texture, is well balanced and displays clarity of expression that flows through to the finish. Dry River Pinot gris definitely improves with good cellaring and generally drinks well from about 4–5 years with the best examples developing well beyond that.
