Montalto Estate Pinot Gris 2015

Blogging is a funny thing. Whilst I’ve got a “real” article that goes into “real” newsprint, (though occasionally the digital edition crops up), the blogging sometimes runs well behind. So dear reader, if it seems that there are peaks and troughs in my posting, please forgive me. I’ll try to be a little more consistent. Meanwhile, Montalto winemaker Simon Black has crafted one hell of a fine example of Pinot Gris.

MontaltoPinotGrisBarrel work (fermentation and maturation) is evident as it lovingly smooths out this fruit driven, layered wine. Think pears, poached in their own juices: both flavour and texture. Complex and elemental, creamy oak nut butter makes this stately, not weighty. Finishing with a delicious savoury quality. Sets a new level for Pinot Gris. Very good.

RRP: $36

Alc: 13.4%
