Foxeys Hangout Pinot Gris

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This charming little pinot gris from Foxey's is at the richer end of the scale, and slightly off-dry in style. There's nashi pears, almonds and florals on the nose that makes for appealing sniffing, whilst the palate is medium-bodied and creamy textured, with bright citrusy acidity, and a smooth, relatively dry finish. Break out the spring rolls!

Winemaker's Notes

Minerals and floral things on the nose, rose petals, very pretty with a long, focused line of acidity shaping the palate.

Pinot gris is made to go with food. Not a noble variety but it tops many other wines because of its ability to partner a wide range of dishes. Seafood, spicy food, Thai curries, white meats, roast chicken. (Chardonnay might be better with the roast chicken, but this gris will still do a good job.)

We like to drink gris young, that is, say, within three years of its vintage date. It will develop gracefully for many years but we prefer it fresh, delicate and pretty.

Crisp and clean, with no reduction; some pear/pear skin flavours; good acidity lengthens the finish.

Mainstream pinot gris; faint pear and apple, alcohol the principal driver, giving the impression of a touch of sweetness.

Very fresh and crisp; bone-dry apple and mineral; more to Grigio in style; attractive squeaky acidity.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Made from very late-harvested grapes; relatively delicate, sweet, fresh fruit with overtones of spice and honey works quite well.
