Personalised Black Cottage Pinot Gris 2023 12.5% 750ml
The wine was fermented on light solids, followed by full malolactic fermentation before being oak ages for 4 months. The bouquet has white peach and apricot aromas, mingling with toasty vanilla bean and burnt lemon butter notes. Undertones of hazelnut husk, almond blossom and lemon balm come through.
Sam Kim- 91 points, It's splendidly fruited and inviting on the nose showing apricot, fig, vanilla and roasted cashew characters, leading to a gorgeously expressed palate that's succulent and creamy. The wine offers lovely fruit purity together with elegant complexity, finishing wonderfully long and attractive. At its best: now to 2023.
