Howard Park, Arbor Novae, Pinot Gris, Great Southern, 2020
A very slight golden hue representing minimal skin contact. Nose of musk, balsa wood, brown pear, crushed rocket and melon pith. Textural and sharp. Tooth cutting acidity works its way through the grippy palate. Drying and driving brown spice and pear flesh with plenty of charisma.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
