Thorn-Clarke Sandpiper Pinot Gris 2016, Eden Valley, AUD $20

This affordable Eden Valley pinot gris has freshness and restraint. It is delightfully bright, citrusy and delicious, though not over-fruity. There’s distinct savouriness on the nose and palate, plus appealing chalky acidity. Delightful served as an aperitif or alongside delicately flavoured foods. (Screwcap)
