What The Critics Say

94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2018 vintage)

"It is wonderfully fruited and gorgeously expressed on the nose showing ripe apricot, poached pear, floral and spice aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is beautifully weighted and concentrated. The wine flows beautifully to a lingering delectable finish. Stylish and immensely appealing. At its best: now to 2021. $25.00. www.providorewines.com. Dec 2018."

91/100 Bob Campbell MW (2018 vintage)

"Made from grapes grown in the Gibbston Back Road vineyard. Delicately luscious wine with ripe nectarine and pear flavours and a suggestion of lime juice. A hint of sweetness is balanced by juicy acidity to give a reasonably drying finish 26/11/2018." Drink 2018 - 2023

18+/20 Raymond Chan (2018 vintage)

"Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues and some depth, paler edged. The nose is elegantly presented with a finely concentrated heart of white and yellow stonefruits along with an amalgam of white florals, pears and herbs along with thirst-quenching minerals, revealing suggestions of nuts. Dry to taste, the palate is rich and lush with a rounded core of white stonefruits, florals, pears and minerals along with some honeysuckle. The mouthfeel shows depth and a degree of unctuousness, and soft acidity enhances the fruit richness. The wine flows smoothly a a layered and nuanced finish of stonefruits, florals and honey. This is a rich and luscious fruited dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral, honeysuckle and minerals on an unctuous and smooth palate. Serve with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the ‘Gibbston Back Road’ vineyard, half crushed to press and given skin contact, the remainder WBP. Fermentation was in a mixture of tank and seasoned French oak barrels, including some solids to 14.0% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS. 365 cases made. 18.0+/20 Nov 2018 RRP $25.00
