Even Keel Pinot Gris 2016
I last saw winemaker Sam Coverdale a couple of years ago. At the time, the plans were in for the new Polperro cellar door and excitement was high. Since the opening about a year ago from memory, it's fair to say he has smashed it and arrived on the scene with an almighty bang.
A most personable bloke with an infectious laugh which fills the room, it's almost as though this Pinot Gris reflects his persona - generous, creative and welcoming.
I could just smell this and feel content. A faint touch of nutmeg wafts by as does under ripe pear and a sliver of lemon peel. There's creamy appeal too.
Delivery is plentiful - some citrus flecks, more cream and pear fruit plus a gentle ginger spice holding it together. I just want to drink it.
Drink now to three years.
93/100 - Very good
