2013 Yealands Estate Land Made Pinot Gris

imageThe name makes me chuckle. Not just ‘land grown’ but ‘land made’. No winemaker means we can pass the savings onto you?

Aromas, flavours and texture are appealing. Nashi pear, lemon, leatherwood honey and spice. A touch of oiliness in the mouth is quickly tidied up by the acidity. A smidgen of residual sugar to go with fruit sweetness. It lacks intensity, conviction and length but I can’t see its target audience caring in the slightest. 87
