Slight change in direction here from the Risky Business team of grape grower / viticulturist Rob Quenby and vintner John Waldron, moving away from Pinot Grigio to the weightier (for me, also more interesting) Gris style. Winemaker is Andrew Vesey.
Risky Business, Pinot Gris, King Valley, 2017
Lovely, fragrant nose: full of pear flesh, musk sticks, ginger shavings and orange zest. Slightly under delivering on the palate compared to the nose but there’s still plenty of clean pear and spice with a waxy feel. Acidity is high and cuts neatly across the teeth as it finishes with orange juice (with all the bits) citrus.
