Derwent Estate Pinot Gris 2012 (Tasmania)
If it really wanted to, I think Southern Tasmania could be ground zero for great Australian Pinot Gris. Whether many Tasmanian producers think there is value in such a sport (Grising) is another question all together.
Anyways this is a clean, dry and fragrant Pinot Gris that has just the barest hint of white peach richness, a wine that balances out the white flower prettiness off the variety with some proper acid crunch. I like it. I like the clean lines and the freshness and the balance of it all. Good Gris.
Would I buy it? Off the list at Golden Century I would buy this without hesitation. Mudcrab me.
