Decanter World Wine, Awards ~ Bronze Medal
New Zealand Herald ~ "This one is bound to have been on the list (for Price Willam and Catherines visit to Amisfield) as it's a perfect example of how Pinot Gris should be made. Lots of layers of aromatics...pear, nectarine, spice and lavender with a lovely mouth-filling richness.
Wine Spectator ~ "Bright and crisp, lending a touch of lime zest to the core of apple, melon and pear flavors. White flower aromatics give this extra lift."
Wine makers notes ~ "This wine is multi-layered expressing fresh vibrant aromatics of ripe pear and nectarine with a hint of mace spice. These lively flavours are integrated with barrel influenced components delivering a rich palate with length and depth. Aged on light fluffy lees for seven months with frequent stirring during the initial period followed by occasional stirring for the remaining time. The essence of this wine is texture complimented by intricate aromatics"
