2016 was a hot, dry vintage that created a Pinot Gris more intense and ageable than prior vintages on the estate. Sue-Ann fermented and aged this wine in French oak for 10 months to create a dry, round, weighty Gris that balances freshness on the first sniff and sip, with a lovely long buxom finish with hints of smoke. This wine will age like a champion. Enjoy now with seafood, poultry, pork, or composed salads.
