Crisp and refreshing

Ottelia Pinot Gris 2017, Limestone Coast, AUD $22

From vineyards at Robe and Mt Gambier, John Innes has made a fine, restrained, pristine gris with subtle dried herb, pot-pourri and almond aromas. It’s crisp and dry in the mouth, with refined texture, a trace of richness and a lingering finish. It has more intensity than most and is refreshing and more-ish. (Screwcap)
