Other Reviews….
Every vintage of this wine has been rated at 93/100 here and, spoiler alert, so too this one. The ongoing quality of Lone Star Creek’s Pinto Gris is quite remarkable. This release is both bodied and poised, with nectarine and dry pear flavours edging into apple and more blossomy zones. Indeed you can add blackcurrant bud and nettle to that mix. There’s texture, there’s body, there’s length. It wouldn’t be hard to talk me up to 94. Drink 2023-2026.
