This dry-style Pinot Gris comes from a single block of vines on the Greystone Vineyard. The grapes grow on calcareous clay soils which leads to a Pinot Gris with inherent minerality and richness. A portion of the wine was aged on yeast lees for four months before estate bottling without ﬁning.

94 Points - Bob Campbell MW
The aroma reminds me of freshly-baked apple pie with a seasoning of cloves. Weighty pinot gris with an initial hint of sweetness that is perfectly balanced by fruity acidity and fine, peppery tannins. A classy wine that is good now but no rush.
94 Points - Sam Kim (Wine Orbit)
This is seriously good. Opulent and stylish, the wine shows golden peach, poached pear, spice and rich floral aromas on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that is wonderfully weighted and creamy. The wine offers layers of silky texture and expansive mouthfeel, enhanced with subtle sweetness, leading to an impressively long velvety finish. At its best: now to 2023.
90 Points - Cameron Douglas (Master Sommelier)
Embracing and exciting bouquet of Gris – aromas and flavours of organic heirloom pears, white pepper, baked apple goods and wild flowers. Just dry with some residual sweetness contrasting the warming alcohol, medium+ acidity, weighty with fine to pure fruit flavours. A leesy spice layer adds complexity and depth. Well made and ready to enjoy. Drink from today and through 2021.
5 Stars - Michael Cooper/Winestate Magazine
This powerful, off-dry wine is already drinking well. Sturdy (14.5% alc/vol) and concentrated, it has generous stone fruit flavours, with hints of honey and oak adding complexity, and strong personality
