Curly Flat Pinot Gris 2016 (750ml)

APPEARANCE
Mid gold

BOUQUET
A richer nose than usual and it is no poorer for the fact. Ripe yet restrained fruit spectrum of pear, apple, and melon along with hints of blood orange. Complexing honeycomb and brûlée notes due to French oak influence and lees contact.

PALATE
Upfront mouthfeel as pear fruit reemerges along with Seville orange, wood spice before graceful chime of acidity ferries the fruit along on a enjoyably textured journey.

CELLARING SUGGESTIONS
Drinking well now and a certain companion for the summer ahead, but 3-5 years in the cellar will bring rewards to those who can resist.
