Whitehaven Pinot Gris 18


Colour / Appearance: Mid-straw with bright clarity.

Aroma / Bouquet: Lifted aromas of almonds and pear, with hints of cinnamon, pepper, and quince.

Palate: The palate is full-flavoured and medium-bodied with a mouth-filling texture, and soft, plush acidity.  The pear, quince and citrus peel flavours tend to the elegant clean finish. 

Cellaring: We believe after cellaring for a year or two the Pinot Gris will gain texture and complexity to augment the varietal characters exhibited by the wine now. However, the wine is already in good balance and can be enjoyed immediately.

Food Match: 
This Pinot Gris is made to be best enjoyed with food. We recommend dishes featuring smoked salmon, mushrooms or light game. Pasta and egg dishes also should match well.

Serve lightly chilled
