Great gris

Bay Of Fires Pinot Gris 2018, Tasmania, AUD $39

This juicy, delicious and very more-ish wine could be used to win over the gris doubters. The nose has yeasty notes over light florals and lovely nectarine-like stone fruits. The palate has some sweetness, nicely judged to back up the stone-fruit flavours, while adding richness and texture. It’s a beautifully made wine. (Screwcap)
