Produced from Orange Pinot Gris with a little judicious skin contact, this has an intensely floral and musky nose that really sticks out. In fact, the intensity is excellent – really punches through.
Palate is quite generous palate in a mode that is more Alsace than Veneto, with lovely almost candied bath salt sweet fruit, plenty of acid to finish.
Simple packaging, simple intentions, but with a personality (and intensity) often missing in $20 Gris. Good value too.
Tasted: August 2014
Score: 17.5/20, 91/100
Would I buy it? A couple of glasses would do. Easy recommendation.
