Wine tasting notes

Floral blend of Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Sauvignon Gris, all lend itself to an exotic cacophony of passion fruit, rose petal and lychee. A gentle hint of oak adds texture and weight to the long finish.

Food matching

An excellent match for Thai green curry and grilled chilli haloum

Expert reviews

JancisRobinson.com (2014) - 16 pts

Jan 2015 - A blend of Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Gris and Riesling. pH 3.29, TA 5.53 g/l. Smells and taste more Germanic than Australian - lemon rather than lime citrus character. Even with this pH and less than 1 g/l residual sugar it tastes surprisingly soft, with the sweetness of hard candy on the finish even though it is technically dry. (JH)


James Halliday (2016) - 91 pts

Pinot gris, gewurztraminer, pinot blanc and sauvignon gris from Pemberton. It's well made, and should be banned from blind tastings/options games because it's capable of eliciting any answer including riesling, which plays no part in a lively palate.


Wine Front (2016) - 90 pts

Blend of pinot grigio, gewürztraminer, pinot blanc and sauvignon blanc from Pemberton in Western Australia. All wild fermented. As is always the case: gewürztraminer dominates. It adds lychee and Turkish delight characters to the nose and to the palate, a swing of citrus, stonefruit and nettle then rushing in to support. When I use the word ‘dominate’ what I really mean is that gewürztraminer leads the wine. Overall it feels well-balanced and composed, with ample flesh and vigour.


Miscellaneous (2014) - 4 stars

Rose Murray Brown MW - "Alsace meets Australia in this wild fermented ‘field blend’ of Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Gris and Riesling in unknown proportions, picked and fermented together. Exotically perfumed, lychees, musk and honey with a rich peachy textural palate – very unique – would make a superb Thai food match"
