Burnt Spur Martinborough Pinot Gris

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage) says
This single-vineyard wine is medium-bodied and vibrant, with fresh citrus fruit, pear and lychee flavours, balanced acidity, and a slightly sweet, smooth finish. Already drinking well.

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Developed lemon curd-like bouquet and very sweet and creamy apricot palate. ''Good dessert style," said one judge.
WINESTATE Volume 34 - Special Edition 2011
Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
From Martin borough Vineyard, the 2010 vintage was grown in the company's Burnt Spur Vineyard, just south of the township, hand-picked, and lees-aged in tanks. A rich, medium style (15 grams/litre of residual sugar), it has concentrated, ripe flavours of peaches, pears and spices in a full-bodied, finely textured Alsace style with lovely mouth feel and immediacy.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Generous, rich, ripe, apple-like aromas and good concentration of sweet varietal flavours.

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
Fleshy and rich, in the classic Alsace style, the 2008 vintage was estate-grown in the Burnt Spur Vineyard, hand-picked, and lees-aged in tanks. Strong pear and spice aromas lead into a mouthfilling wine with concentrated pear and spiced apple flavours and a lingering finish. It's a youthful, tightly structured wine, with cellaring potential.
