Kilikanoon Skilly Valley Pinot Gris 2016


A cheeky little Pinot Gris here outta prime Riesling country. Solid as the bank vault doors, this is an enjoyable wine sure to please.

The usual Pinot Gris characteristics step up to the plate here - pear, baked apple. Some minerally drive and texture but it's shoulders are more rounded than that of those from, say, the Mornington Peninsula. A drop of citrus curls up in the corner as does a subtle spice. Acid is a bit tacky but it's the consistency through the mouth which will win friends.

Drink now.
