|Aroma & Palate||Apricot, pear|
|Style||Soft & gentle|
Deeply grey, as per the name, and softer than this month’s other Gris, with a pronounced apricot note and some stewed Granny Smith. Not quite creamy, per se, still light and clear, but perhaps approaching butteriness.
Goes down easy, as the style often does, but try to savour at least a while - there’s some unexpected cereal sweetness to be found and an apricot astringency hiding in that bright summery acidity.
From The Winemaker
A beautifully focused and fragrant wine of fresh primary melon, kiwifruit, nashi pear and green apple notes. Distinct oatmeal nuttiness adds a delicious intricacy, along with indulging buttery nuances.
An exceptionally pure nose, full of varietal complexity. The palate abounds in a fuller volume, rich and textured with a punchy acid drive, offering structural support. Salivating notes of ripe melon, pear and citrus add a burst of clarity, leading into a voluptuous length, leaving you wanting more.
The Saint and Scholar Pinot Gris is a fantastic example of this underrated grape variety. Serve the wine crisp with a local charcuterie board, out in the sunshine, for that authentic provincial feel.
