2023 The Other Wine Co. Pinot Gris
The ninth release of The Other Wine Co. Pinot Gris, from an exceptional, cold vintage. It tipifies the wines style evolution - textural ferments, maturation in old French oak, and a beautiful balance of texture and flavour. Super aromatic from a highly concentrated season, with white pear, jasmine and almond sorbet.
Very light colour with a faint grey tint, the aroma subtle dried flowers/pot-pourri, the palate reserved and light, with a good backbone of tannin and acidity beautifully harmonised with the fruit flavour. Faint echoes of jasmine and spice. The balance is fairly dry, clean and crisply appetising.
