Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
In top vintages, this is one of the best-value Pinot Gris in the country. The 2009 , hand-picked at 24 brix, is a powerful, Alsace style, fleshy and ripely scented, with a slightly oily texture and deep stone-fruit and spice flavours. The 2010 vintage is mouthfilling and peachy, with hints of spice and apricot, slight sweetness (8 grams/litre of residual sugar) balanced by fresh acidity, and very good flavour depth, but less compelling than the 2009.

Michael Cooper (2005 Vintage) says
The fine value 2005 vintage was harvested at 23.5 brix, fermented and lees-stirred for a month in tanks, and bottled young. 'Untainted by oak', it is richly scented, with concentrated stone-fruit flavours, a hint of honey and a slightly gingery, well-spiced finish. A medium-dry style (12 grams/litre of residual sugar), it's already delicious.
