The Climbing range by Cumulus Wines, with their quirky labels inspired by an 1880’s “Dive Circus” poster, are more than a capable ambassador for the cool climate Orange region.
Climbing, Pinot Gris, Orange, NSW 2016
50% old French oak, 50% stainless steel maturation. Soap and baked pear notes, with a little sweet nut cream from sitting on lees. Medium to full bodied, the weight held aloft with green apple slice acidity before soft nut tones, grippy phenolics and lingering citrus. Has structure and class.
