2021 10X Pinot Gris

Lifted barley, fresh lemon and spice on the nose leads you into a Pinot Gris that is a texturally driven wine. The palate is driven by fresh gooseberry and pear skin with hints of chive that creates an intriguing plush, sultry and savoury style.

Other Notes
Moderate temperatures throughout a wet spring and into flowering resulted in healthy canopies with slightly lower than average yields. Above average rainfall over the Summer due to La Niña was moderated by dry spells and moderate temperatures resulted in slower ripening. High levels of acidity were retained along with great concentration of flavour, fine detail and precision.
