Cracka Review

The Mornington Peninsula is fast becoming the place to produce top notch Pinot Gris the cool climate providing an agreeable fit for the variety. It shows all the trademark Gris aromas of pear, apple and a little spice. These aromas follow through to the palate that is luscious, textured and refreshing. It would go well, with white meat dishes or fish with rich, creamy sauces.

Winemaker's Notes

The bouquet has lifted varietal fragrance of fresh cut pear with hints of lychee and mandarin. The palate has fresh pear and citrus fruit flavours combined with lovely mid palate texture and balance, finishing with cleansing acidity. Alcohol 14.0%

Paringa Estate Pinot Gris

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Pale colour, vibrant hue; a ripe bouquet of spiced pear and anise; the palate is fleshy on entry, with an energetic backbone of acidity and minerals; long, generous and with plenty of flavour for the naysayers of this variety.

Nick Stock (2008 Vintage) says
A really fresh, bright and brisk-smelling pinot gris that carries intense green apple and pear fruits, some nectarine and lime too. On the palate it's all crisp, fresh apple and bosc pear flavour, nice richness and crunch, finishing with lingering pear skin flavour.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Pale colour; the bouquet has pear fruit and a little spice; cleansing acidity on the palate, with good texture; savoury and demanding food.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
A super-fragrant and flowery bouquet, the palate providing intense support in a citrus/pear/ apple spectrum; long, bone-dry finish. Equal to Seppelt Coborra.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Classic pear/pear drop/apple/apple skin aromas and flavours; once again, a magician at work, even if his talents would be better employed on more rewarding varieties.
Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007
James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Faint pink tinge from the variety; far more flavour than the vast majority; ripe apple, musk and pear; improbably carries its alcohol with aplomb.
Australian Wine Companion 2007 2006
James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Powerful and mouthfilling; 15° alcohol plays a big part in texture, but doesn't heat the finish; correct pear, apple and spice flavours.
Australian Wine Companion 2006 2005
James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Full-on straw-pink; the light mix of apple, pear and strawberry aromas is followed by a powerful palate, with good feel and balance, neither hot nor phenolic.
