Scorpo Pinot Gris 2015
This 100% barrel-fermented wine is a beguiling pale yellow straw colour. It has lifted aromas of white flowers and musk, white spice, fruit notes of pear and red russet apple, and a hint of flintiness from the natural ferments. The palate is whistle-clean and light on its feet, belying the intensity of its white fruit, nashi pear and mineral tones. It’s very pure, with a sweet mid-palate that dries off as the mouth-watering refreshing acid and gentle phenolics emerge from the wine.
James Halliday – Very pale pink; Paul Scorpo has a well deserved reputation for his Pinot Gris, and this isn't going to let him down. Clear pear/poached pear fruit provides excellent mouthfeel, and the finish is long and well structured. 14% alc.
