2020 Delatite Pinot Gris
Rich, flavour packed and luscious this is a classic example of a fuller Alsace styled Pinot Gris.
A drier and warmer growing season than normal resulted in lower yields but very high quality fruit making for a more expressive, richer and textured version of Pinot Gris. Brilliant pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Expressive ripe pear, red apple and honeysuckle scents leap out of the glass followed by hints of quince and spice. Rich and lusciously textured, totally mouthfilling flavours of pear, ripe apple and honeysuckle burst across the palate with explosive power and concentration. Finishes slightly off dry with good freshness, musk and spice elements filling out the back half. Long, rich, super intense aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
