Another great example of Yarra Valley Pinot Gris from the Punt Road team! This takes in crisp apple, nashi pear and gingery flavour with a lovely mouthfeel and tight finish. 20% of fruit spends time in French oak hogsheads, adding complexity to the palate. A solid wine for under $20.
Awards and Accolades
2014 Vintage: 95 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Australian Wine Companion "Outstanding value and quality. Clean, crunchy, powerful and yet dry and structural to close. Barley, lime, spiced red apples and a dry, almost minerally finish. Rock star pinot gris."
From the Winery
‘Fresh and lively, crunchy nashi pear, Meyer lemon, Lemonade, fresh ginger, textural harmony.’ Tim Shand, Head Winemaker
2017 is a very promising vintage, that may prove to be one of the best seen in the Yarra Valley in recent memory. Plentiful frosty nights and heavy rains in winter delayed budburst, and spring continued in this mild (and wet) fashion. Bunch size in pinot gris was very small. Yields were low, around 2.5t/acre, leading to intensity of flavour.
