The Mornington Peninsula seems to have at least as much success with Pinot Gris as any other region. This example is dry with an emphasis firmly on body and texture. Wild fermented in old French barriques for eight months with partial malo allowed and battonage employed.
Aromas of pear and musk with subtle tropical influences. Pleasant mouthfeel, leesy savouriness and weight. Some spice at the end. It’s not overly long and lacks much in the way of detail, lending an amorphous quality to the whole experience but it’s a still a fair take on the style. 88
