Comments by winemaker, Wilco Lam:

The 2016 Dry River Pinot Gris is initially a bit shy, which is to be expected of a young wine, but progressively the complexities start to become evident. Kiwi fruit, rock melon and white flesh stone-fruit are the obvious fruit aromas. We gladly welcome the stewed rhubarb character I often saw in our past Pinot gris. Bay leaf, ground galangal, and other Indian spices like cardamom and caraway seed add further interest. Candle nuts and vanilla pod bring a grounding effect and entice to finally start tasting!

The wine appears drier than previous releases, the residual sugar is approximately 20 g/l, which might be thanks to the interplay with a fresh acidity and the drying effect of the mid palate phenolics. Together with the oily nature, an even and wide perception, the wine is allowed to travel with little effort and hindrance. The alcohol plays an important role by supplying buoyancy, length and unity.

We expect this wine to improve over the next 3-5 years with a further gain of interest when cellared for longer.
