Hawke’s Bay gris

Church Road Pinot Gris 2018, Hawke’s Bay, AUD $26

Faint golden tones. The palate is luscious and sweet with dried fig, baked cream and stewed pear flavours. Attractive savoury undertones with good balance, persistence and expression. The style is reminiscent of Alsatian pinot gris. (Screwcap)
