Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
A good example of gris style, with candied orange fruits, ample flesh and a clean finish.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Matt Harrop has teased that bit extra out of pinot gris, partly thanks to Adelaide Hills fruit quality, partly whole-bunch pressing, and part extended lees contact in tank a la Muscadet Sur Lie.

Clean and correct, but simply shows the limitations of the variety; crisp finish.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Spotlessly clean; apple/apple skin/pear aromas and flavours; good balance and mouthfeel; a touch of mineral on the finish.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; fresh, clean spice, pear, apple and almond aromas lead into a palate which builds flavour progressively through to the finish; the alcohol seems higher than 13.5°. Whole bunch-pressed, and fermented in older French oak.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; a range of dried fruit, spices, peach skin and berry aromatics lead into a palate with abundant character and weight, but is not particularly focussed. One cannot help but wonder whether a slightly less exuberant fermentation would have helped on this score.
