Greystone Sand Dollar Pinot Gris

Out of Stock

Cracka Review

Light golden in colour, a complex nose which opens up considerably in the glass - showing stone fruit, honey, dried pear, ginger and hints of lemon curd. The palate is nutty with rich honey characters all with a lovely texture. A dry wine with a long and refreshing finish.

Greystone Sand Dollar Pinot Gris

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage) says
Made in an unusually dry (3g/litre of residual sugar) style, this is a fleshy wine with powerful bodu and fresh, concentrated citrus fruit, pear and spice flavours, still unfolding. Open 2014+
May/June 2013

Winestate Magazine, Mar/Apr 2012
Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
Elegant and restrained, with aromas of white peach, poached pear and grapefruit, and lighter hints of dried citrus peel, almond paste and clotted cream. Expressive and rich on the palate, with plenty of drive, detail and creamy nuance to satisfy the most fussy of wine drinkers.

Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
A dry style, the 2010 has substantial body and deep, peachy, slightly spicy flavours. Fresh, tight and minerally, with lively acidity, it shows excellent concentration. The 2011 vintage is similar - very elegant, rich, vibrantly fruity and poised, with an oily texture and strong, dry (4 grams/litre of residual sugar), peachy, spicy flavours, just waiting to unfold.

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
A composed and gently creamy-smelling gris that has soft honeysuckle and pear aromas; some talc and tropical fruit nuances too. The palate has smooth and supple fleshy presence, with decent acid/sugar balance and plenty of fruit length.
