2016 Greystone Sand Dollar Pinot Gris
Bright straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is full, broad and voluminous with deep and rich aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits along with nuances of tropical fruits and exotic florals,nuances of honeysuckle, and steel, mouthwatering minerals. Subtle complexing nutty lees elements emerge with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has richness and weighty flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits along with subtle tropical fruit elements, exotic florals, unfolding honied notes. Mineral and nutty detail add interest. The palate has weight, body and presence, but retains a degree of elegance with integrated acidity, the wine carrying smoothly along a fine line, leading to a full, lingering, dry finish of rich stonefruits and exotic florals. This is a rich-fruited dry Pinot Gris with layers of exotic fruits, florals, honey and minerals on a palate with strong presence and length.
