Brilliant pale straw colour with a watery hue. Aromas of ripe pear intermix with hints of lychee, rose water and light quince followed by spicy end notes. Light with a very fresh and elegant feel the palate has Gewurztraminer like spice and lychee qualities to it. Pear, some tangy citrus and infusions of musk are also present. Finishes dry with crisp acidity and a medium length spice, lychee and musk aftertaste.

Other Reviews….
Definitively 'gris' over 'grigio' in terms of vinosity, detail and chutzpah, this is among the country's better examples. Apple and pear gelato flavours shimmer across a beam of vibrant acidity. As with most of the range, the finish is penetrative and long. Clearly a useful wine at the South-East Asian table. Drink by 2021.
