Thomas James Tumbarumba Pinot Gris 2021

Light lemon hue. Fine varietal and clean aromas: candle wax, rich pear, ripe melon, marzipan and smoky creamy citrus. Enjoyable weight and heft, just waxy body with a clean, dry set of heels through the finish. Good undercurrent of acidity and energy. A very good example of the modern Australian “Gris.”

RRP: $25
Alc 13%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
