2015 Tuck's Ridge Pinot Gris

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This is a rather rich, buxom style of Pinot Gris made in a relatively dry style, which means it is a generous mouthful of wine. Ripe pears, red apples, ginger spice and honeysuckle florals fill the nasal passages, and then leap onto the fulsome palate. It's all wrapped up in bright acidity, a touch of talciness and a smooth, voluptuous finish. Great over the next couple of years with some Thai takeaway.

Winemaker's Notes

The white wine for red drinkers. This is a wonderful example of the tightrope walk of balance that is Pinot Gris. Ripe pear, musk and floral notes bursting from the glass. Rich and rounded without being cloying or flabby. Best matched with spiced seafood dishes. Drink or age for 1 - 3 years. ​

Alc/vol: 13.7%

Expert Reviews

Wine Companion (2015 Vintage) says
Don't hesitate. If you see this around and pinot gris is called for, this is a beautiful example of the variety. Chalk, nashi pear, honeysuckle and red apple all add up to succulent fruit, a crunchy dryness and assorted savoury inputs that really set the fireworks off.

It’s a perfect pinot gris for drinking. It’s complex but come hither, flavoursome but lengthy. One sip, and you know you have a ripper on your hands. Spice, nashi pear, honeysuckle and pretty apple flavours. It hits, runs and impresses.

Much more flavour than most, with ripe pear and apple and a mercifully low alcohol level.

Tangy, lively pear, lemon, spice and mineral mix; has length and attitude.

Fragrant apple, pear, musk and spice aromas; a Pinot Gris with attitude and flavour.
