Carrick Pinot Gris 2016
A wonderful textural element on the palate that is reflective of an Alsatian style while retaining a clean acidity that is a hallmark of the windblown glacial soils on the Cairnmuir terraces in Bannockburn. Subtle blossom aromas with flavours of white nectarine close to the stone are evident. A lovely structural white wine that sits nicely in the glass, perfect as a late afternoon aperitif.
The Wine Front – About 60% is fermented in barrel. Unusual move for gris, but hey, Francis Hutt ain’t no regular winemaker. Deep thinker, pushing boundaries, working with organic, estate fruit. Fruity, fun-lovin perfume – floral, brown pear, candied peel scents. Slippery, cool. Brown pear, lean white fruit flavours, slick, fine, then long through a gently sweet finish. Has a light, brown pear skinsy character too. Complexity in the wine, yet flavour town. Lots to like here.
In a mixed or straight case: $32.29
