Tasting Notes

This self-confidently atypical pinot gris has astonishing acidity that’s got the intensity of a lightning strike. Tons of pineapple and toast character, but also gigantic, lemony freshness at the exceptionally bright finish. May be too extreme for some, but we find this amazing. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, June 2021

Pale gold colour. Quite a wild, different nose to many in the line-up here. Peppery, with notes of cured meat, mandarin and glossy ripe pear. This follows on the palate, with a rich, chalky texture and deeply savoury fruit profile. Fresh acidity lingers in tandem with hints of pineapple and peach on the finish.
