Barwang Pinot Gris 2011

I was already thinking about summer time when I looked at this. The fruit is drawn from three cool climate regions: Tumbarumba, Tasmania and Adelaide Hills.

Light and pale straw in colour, you get a good whiff of fresh cut apple, green apple peel, pear, and a touch of vanilla.

Clean and fresh flavours of apple and pear highlight the palate. A good dash of minerality too which kicks along the interest factor. Having been left on lees of four months, the texture punches through nicely.

Good length on the finish, and for the money, it's a pretty decent drop.

It's vibrant. It's very refreshing. It's worth a look.
