Lawson's Dry Hills
Pinot Gris 2013
Winemaker: Marcus Wright/Rebecca Wiffen
Alcohol: 13.50% pH: 3.55 RS: 8.0g/L
TA: 5.7g/L Brix: 23.2 - 24.6
Pear, stonefruit and citrus characters feature strongly and the combination of low yields, partial barrel fermentation and lees stirring has produced a wine with weight, complexity and length.
Ideal wine to drink whilst young, however it will become more complex and interesting with time
Enjoy in moderation with white fish, shell fish or crab meat, Cheeses or salami.

This is silky smooth and full of delicious flavours. The elegantly perfumed bouquet shows stone fruit, floral notes and pear, with a hint of spice. It's concentrated and succulent on the palate with excellent mid palate weight and fruit intensity, leading to a lingering refreshing finish. The wine is immediately appealing, yet this should develop further to show greater complexity and richness.
