Moorooduc Estate Pinot Gris On Skins 2016, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $38

This is pinot gris made the same way as pinot noir. Full orange-brick colour, sweetly scented bouquet of cherry, raspberry and slight muscaty rosewater overtones. The palate is fuller and richer than most rosés, with terrific depth and generosity of fruit character. You’d swear it was made from pinot noir. (Screwcap)
