2017 Connor's Farm Langhorne Creek Pinot Gris
From the hand of veteran winemaker Mike Farmillo comes a very attractive modern Pinot Gris of texture and flavour.
Skip the oceans of bad Grigio out there and drink this.
It is delicately fragrant on the nose showing rockmelon, lime zest, green tea and apple blossom aromas, followed by a brightly expressed palate that displays crunchy fruit notes backed by vibrant acidity, finishing long and pleasingly dry. The wine is wonderfully fine and restrained. At its best: now to 2020. 92 points - Sam Kim
How's it taste?
Bright pear juice aromatics on a ripe and flavoursome palate, finishing with some phenolic grip and a crisp finish.
How was it made?
'A bright, pale straw green wine with a pink hue. On the nose this Pinot Gris leaps from the glass with ripe Anjou pear and chalky minerality. These delightful flavours carry through to the palate which is fresh and crisp, finishing with soft spice characters' Mike Farmilo, winemaker.
