Valli Gibbston Pinot Gris

Valli Gibbston Vineyard Pinot Gris

2017

"Pear, lime zest, almond and cream soda on the nose accentuated by an intense mineral character. A very aromatic Pinot Gris with fantastic cool climate freshness from a notably cool growing season with an intensity coming from the unusually small bunches. The Palate is laden with fruit flavours including many types of pear (Anjou, Williams and Nashi), white peach and citrus. A beautifully textured mid palate is complimented by a vibrant vein of acidity that runs through the wine giving it drive and length. Our Pinot Gris is great for food pairing, delicious on its own and very age worthy. This vintage in particular is one our Winemakers believe will highly reward those hide some in the cellar."

Valli 2014 Pinot Gris

Valli Gibbston Vineyard Pinot Gris 2014

"Freshly-baked apple pie on the nose with pineapple lifesaver fruit notes. Round and full at entry, broad and rich mid palate with layers of fruit flavours: apples, pears and white peaches. Bright, clean acid tightens up the finish, keeps the wine lively and gives it length. This style of Pinot Gris will reward cellaring.”
