Glorious gris

Lethbridge Pinot Gris 2016, Geelong, AUD $30

The colour is medium copper; the aromas fragrant and lifted with spice, talcum powder and nutty barrel complexities. It’s light and fresh in the mouth, with intense fruit, zesty acidity and a clean, refreshing finish. An outstanding gris. (Screwcap)
