Pale straw, with an almost apple flesh appearance, the colour of this wine is a striking introduction to its finesse and delicate character. Broad aromatics of Nashi pear and persimmon are amongst the first fruit-like characters to stand out. Underlying notes of fresh Brioche and a delicate floral perfume contribute to an ethereal nose. From entrance to finish the palate flavours suggest ripe pear and rock melon. This seamlessness through the palate is a hallmark of great Pinot gris. The largest proportion of the Dry River Pinot gris is grown on the oldest of our vines, original plantings on their own roots, imbuing this wine with minerality, concentration and elegance. Our Pinot gris generally improves over four to five years in a good cellar (12°C), but you should be prepared to re-evaluate the remaining bottles for further maturation at this point.
