The 2020 East Argyle Pinot Gris is a wine of exceptional elegance and complexity. The bouquet is richly perfumed with cinnamon-spiced apple crumble, fresh quince and sandalwood, delicately accented with the fragrant floral notes of honeysuckle and rose petals. The palate is luxuriously complex yet elegantly structured; for while the rich flavours of sweetly-spiced poached pears, peach cobbler and bittersweet caramel abound in the decadently creamy mid-palate, a crisp natural acidity imparts both grace and finesse, carrying the symphony of flavours through to a long, elegant finish.
Appearance: Pale straw with a hint of rose gold
Bouquet: The nose is a decadently indulgent and luxurious bouquet. Awash with the decadent aromas of cinnamon-spiced pear crumble, freshly baked brioche and quince paste; accented with the floral perfume of rose, honeysuckle and jasmine. These heady fragrances waft above the enticingly rich aromas of bittersweet-caramel, raw honeycomb and ground spices; gently encircling the core fruit fragrances of softened pears, Pink Lady apples and fresh white peach.
Palate: The palate is an intensely textural experience; with fine, crunchy phenolics intertwined with zesty natural acidity to create a complex and finely balanced foundation. The indulgent flavours of caramel soaked apples and spicy poached pears are perfectly balanced and bittersweet, harmonising with the savoury inflection of the phenolic structure and drawn through the palate by the tight acid line that adds a delicate crispness and causes those flavours to linger sensuously on the finish.
Food Pairing: Perfect for aromatic and mildly spiced Asian dishes, antipasto and any modern Australian cuisine
