Pinot gris can be fresh and fruity, overblown and hot with high alcohol or, as with some of the most interesting ones, complex with barrel fermentation and lees ageing.
Four stars (out of five)
A bold, flavoursome wine, aromatic and mouth-filling with ripe pear, peach and apple, a suggestion of nuts and a textural,well-balanced, firm finish.
A delicious wine, fragrant with lovely fruit intensity - pear and peach with a slight nutty undertone, texture and a fresh,well-balanced, dryish finish.
Three and a half stars
Rich, with sweet ripe - almost overripe - apple and pear, hints of nuts, mouth-filling and hot on the finish. Look for it on special at $14.
Below average value
This is one of Brancott's lower alcohol (9%) wines. It's pale, fragrant, with simple, flavours and a light sweetness on the finish. Often found on special.
Light aromas but full-on, exuberant flavours - ripe pear, peach, citrus, nuts, caramel and even hints of fennel, concentrated with texture from some barrel fermentation.
This is a delicious take on a sometimes boring variety, but you expect no less from Lawson's.
Four and a half stars
Another mouth-filling wine with lots of flavour - oozing ripe pears and peaches, and complex nutty, buttery caramel notes, it's also balanced, harmonious and charming, as expected from winemaker Kevin Judd. This will develop with another year or two's bottle age.
